Searching the unsearchable

You probably know about the twitter hashtag “bcalhelp” .. A way for you to ask help on twitter about anything AL for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Well – yesterday, it made me smile … there was someone that was trying to find something on Vjeko’s blog.  Pretty clever to use the bcalhelp for it :-), because he immediately got response.  Here is the twitter thread (if you can call a question/answer a thread ;-)):

You see that “trickynamics” got immediate response from “Marton Sagi” .. And if you don’t know Marton Sagi – then you probably realize that you actually do, because it’s the guy behind the AL Object Designer – one you should add to your VSCode Extensions ;-).

Anyway – not being able to search Vjeko’s blog is something that needs to be fixed.  It’s unthinkable.  So I decided to contribute to that – and I would encourage all the social-engaged people in the community to blog or share this one on all levels ;-).

How to search Vjeko’s Blog:

Well, it’s a wordpress blog, and every wordpress blog can be searched by adding “/?s=querystring“.  Just try to search my blog on the top right, and see what URL you get.  A similar thing you can do with vjeko’s blog.

So, a few examples:

You get the picture 😉

How come the search is removed?  Doesn’t Vjeko want us to search his blog anymore?

Well, I talked to him, and he is actually in the process of moving his blog to his own server – and moving a wordpress apparently comes with some challenges .. so let’s give him some time, I guess ;-).

Disclaimer

Yes, with all the heavy content out there, I thought it was time for a lightweight article – which is mainly meant as a joke to put a smile on some faces ;-). Enjoy…

    Oooor you could use Google or many other search engines using the “site:” keyword. So the website you are searching does not even have to implement search:
    site:vjeko.com Business Central
    https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Avjeko.com+business+central

  1. Guys, thanks for bringing this to my attention. I’ll fix this promptly… Or a bit less so. The theme I chose doesn’t have a built-in search capability so I have to hack something out. Given how much time I have on my hands these days, this may come a bit later, rather than sooner, but let’s see.

    Thanks, Waldo, bro!

  1. […] True, there was no episode 1, not on this blog. But if Star Wars can start with episode 4, I don’t see why can’t I start with episode 2. Especially when Waldo has already written episode 1. […]
