Have been somewhat busy the last couple of weeks looking after DH after his hip replacement (and resting myself too!).
I did see a thread about best buys/worst buys which gave a link to something connected to herbs. Also there was another one about a good soup maker too.
How can I find them again now? Not even sure which forum they were under?

With great difficulty newquay.
I've been on Gransnet for 5 years and never succeeded in finding anything with the useless search facility.
I don't think it's just me, eithergrin

The thread is called Best Buy/ don't buy according to the search facility which took me straight to that thread I don't know if that's the one you are looking for

Sorry I got that wrong and of course you can't edit on gransnet grrrrrrr
Best Buy /never buy
And they are talking about something to do with mint if that was what you meant

However when I put in Best Buy never buy it doesn't take me to that thread so I see what you janeainsworth
What a daft facility

The Best Buy/ never buy is on 'Chat'

Was it this one Newquay?

The soup maker is on 'House and Home'
You can find most posts from the search box top right box on page.

I have more success with the top right search box than the 'search forums' one, which usually tells me that I am not watching any threads at the moment - wrong, and not what I asked for anyway!
If you have posted on the thread it is easier to find under 'I'm on'.

Soup maker | Food | Grandparents forum - talk to other grandparents

There are various threads on GN re Soup Makers.

Enter Soup Maker Threads into 'SEARCH' and they will pop up.

' SEARCH ' is a bit hit and miss and does not work all the time sadly but for Soup Makers it does.

Thanks so much-don't have time to look right now but will over weekend😀

If the results of the search facility came up in chronological order it would be helpful!

Elegran Sat 22-Apr-17 16:28:19

Or even if it were possibly to work out just what order they DO come up in. It seems to be random.

AlieOxon Sat 22-Apr-17 16:32:51

I've had great difficulty with the order hat results come up in!
I usually try other search words if I can.....

Such is the stupidity of the site we use!

We are all pawns in the name of profit for the owners, sod the punters.
