hi all...

just wondering if anyone knows the answer to this one.... sometimes i search ljp on a given subject, when i find a result with the wording i am looking for, i click on the result and it usually takes me to the exact part of a thread containing the words that i have searched for, this is usually a 'comment' found in the middle of a thread, and therefore you are unable to see the original question or any written prior to this comment .  is there a way of backing up in order to see the whole thread?

hope this is clear enough
There are 8 comments, leave a comment.
i second this request, i've found exactly the same problem!

when i search, i click on the thread or room results and it brings me to that room or thread.  will you give me an example search term?
If I'm not back in 24 hours, call the president.

Scot is available for skype jazz piano lessons (and google hangouts, phone call, etc...)

hi scot,
an example would be; type 'learn new tunes' and then search 'all'

this returns 5 results: as below

04/07/2006, hands wet and strive to learn new tunes keep building, 26213  

06/19/2006 ... brad mehldau. when you learn new tunes....transcribe... 28147  

08/17/2006,only is it a great way to learn new tunes, it's the,29345  

09/20/2007 ... as a pro ... now i just learn new tunes when i feel... 37174  

02/11/2004 ... that's mostly how i like to learn new tunes unless they... 955  

if i click on the penultimate result, it brings me to a thread, which begins with a comment from 'mike', which is obviously in the middle of that particular thread..... i'm guessing the only way to see the 'whole' thread (including what was stated before mike's comment) would be to click back all the way back to 20 september 2007 to find the page... but when you have to go all the way back to 2004 it takes a fair amount of clicking back to find the original page where the thread sits. my question is; is there a quicker way to find the original thread with its complete contents, from start to finis, without having to click all the way back in order to find the original thread?  

hope that's not too jargon filled..
what ttt said.
here's an indirect way to do it, which usually works. select and copy the message number of the message you found (example: #39331). go to google. select advanced search. paste the message number in the box that says: "with all the words". in the box that says: "return results from the site or domain", enter: www.learnjazzpiano.com. then click on google search. it will display the whole thread.

occasionally, this fails. dunno why.

btw, you can also search on google for the postings from an individual member this way. for example, enter "7 p" or "jazz+" or "albetan w".

thanks rid..makes things much easier

i found that (as you said) a number of the results fail,, but if, after a result failure, you insert the date of the thread you want (instead of the thread number)into the field, and tweak the date a little bit, it will bring you to the page with all the threads appearing on that date in the "piano lounge" (takes a few attemps though) but overall it's a lot easier to search for your thread (with 'all' the comments included)....

who knows why google fails to return the other results?
ok... after much experimentation on google search, a possible solution has popped up (thanks to rid's original solution)...

here goes...  
1) carry out a search
2)select one of the results
3)from your top thread, select the first sentence,
4)follow rid's instructions* (abbra-cadabra the whole thread is displayed)  

nb* the only difference is that you paste your 'selected phrase' into the required field (instead of the thread number)  

i tried this about 5 times and it seems to work every time.... hope it wasn't just luck.....

steps 1-3 are done on ljp search
step 4 is done on google advanced search

also when the 'google advanced' results return, you just have to look for the wording you selected, that should appear at the beginning of one of googles results..... and that should be your complete thread
