I'm working on removing some of the forum searching functions and pushing more toward just searching the covers area. For now, here's the basics out how to search effectively: Search covers link is globally available: You will be take to a page that looks like this: Narrowing down your search terms by selecting categories is the best thing you can do. choosing the title only field is also helpful. Use key words in your search. For "star wars the empires strikes back" drop "the" and just use the rest. Please feel free to ask questions here if you have questions about the search.
