How to Search the X1 Forums with the X1 Professional Client

Postby Greg Dawes » Mon Nov 09, 2009 3:12 pm

We have updated the search capabilities of the X1 Forums. In addition to searching the forums directly in your internet browser, X1 Forum Browser Search, you can now search the X1 Forums by using your X1 Professional Client.

To search the X1 Forums by using your X1 Professional Client, you need to add a server source to your All Searches pane. Here's how:
    1. Launch X1
    2. Click on Tools > Select Sources
    3. Click the Add button
    4. In the Choose Connection Type dropdown, select X1 Enterprise Server
    5. In the Location field, type (or copy) the following: http://forumsearch.x1.com:2542/
    6. Leave the username and password fields blank
    7. Place a check in the box to Save username/password
    8. Click the OK button

A new search source (forumsearch.x1.com) will appear in the All Searches pane on the left-hand side of your X1 Professional Client (to view you may need to expose the Searches Pane by clicking on View > Searches Pane).

To search the forums using the X1 Professional Client:
    1. In the All Searches pane, expand the newly created forumsearch.x1.com search and click on X1 Forums
    2. Enter your search term(s)
    3. To begin searching, you MUST click the Search button located just to the right of the primary search field, since you are receiving your search results from an X1 Enterprise Server.
    4. You can refine your search results FAYT (Fast As You Type) by entering additional search terms into either the primary search field or any of the column search fields.

Please let us know what you think of this expanded capability!
