Sorry folks, but the search engine in this software is next to useless. I wanted to find out if there is a POI file for Borders and/or Barnes & Noble. Can anyone tell me how to construct a search or find a web page that will answer that question? The link from POI/stores leads to a list sorted by posting date, with many pages to sort through. The search function for the site gives many responses, most containing the words, but not on topic, as far as my needs are concerned.
Go to POI file tab. At the buttom there is a link that will list all POI in alpha order. It will be easier to find all POI.
When I am doing my daily check using the Alpha list I also use the find feature of my web browser and put in the key words like "Ihop" and that is how I find all the "Ihop" listings on the site.
When you have the 'Alphabetized List of POI Files' displayed, with Windows do a CTRL+F and type in a portion of the file you're looking for ... then click 'Find Next'.
I know I have asked this in the past but are there any development plans to start to 'tag' the POIs for easier searching? For example all the Colorado POIs or all the Baseball POIs..I am sure with the amount of regulars here we could help in the tagging? I would not want to go crazy with it but just having them in a category via a tag would be awesome and I am sure most of the new people to the POI factory would appreciate it as well as some of us old folks…LOL
I find that the alphabetical listing is by far the easiest way to find the POI files I'm looking for. And I agree that using CRTL+F within the browser simplifies searching the page.
I never knew you could do that on a web page. It works great on the page with the Alphabetized List OF POI Files. Thanks!
Jon and I are working on other site features right now. I would like to have Jon build a second level of categorization so that you go into the restaurant category and find different options like "fast food" "Ethnic", "Family"
and the same with the other categories.
Which works fine *IF* the creator put the keyword you are searching for in the title of the POI.
If the keyword only shows up in the description then this doesn't work.
Barns and noble, all i did was put in the search word barns and this is what i got.
Here's the results from my search for Border's Books
I didn't look for B&N.
I took three shots at a search under the "POI Files" tab, before Borders popped up:
1) "borders" yielded far too many results
2) same for "border bookstore"
3) "border's books" yielded a few results, the POI file was easy to spot.
