Finding Old Posts

Anonymous has just said something about having to reply before posts fall off the bottom of the page, which has made me think that I ought to just point out that you can always find anything that’s on this blog – even after its “best before” date.

There are three basic ways (until I manage to find a better way of indexing everything)

1. The least useful way – if you know which month it was posted, look down the side bar for that particular month. A pain in the backside, but sometimes yields results.

2. A so-so method. Look at the list of labels at the top of the page and try to second-guess which one (or ones) I will have listed your subject under, click on that label and scroll down. I’m often a bit arbitrary about labels though and it can be a bit of a slog, especially if there are a few dozen posts about, say, restaurants.

3. The best method. Use the Google search box at the top of the page. Its default is “search within this blog” so if you’re looking for a specific thing – say a particular restaurant, you can type it in and hit ‘search.’ And yes. The Phantom Webmaster has apologised for the bad pun at the top of the results page.
