A lot of web sites include the comment 'If the information searched for has not been found - try (button) Advanced Search' when a search is carried out.

There seems to be a number of users asking for searches that can narrow down the search using more definite criteria that is available under Adv. Search option.

My suggestion is to include a link to the Advanced Search at the bottom of the search results so that users are directed there rather than ask 'How To' for stuff that is easily available.

I do almost all of my searches as advanced ones.
One of the issues I have is that Games seem to be the only database I can search in advanced mode directly.
Trying to search something else that way just causes it to default back to Boardgames. So to do an advanced search of forums, I do a blank search, then select the advanced option afterwards.
