Right now since season 1 was released there has been a massive increase in the numbers of thread popping up on the forums, most of them are about the same things.

And seeing as the search function has been disabled at the moment, and people simply cant look at the 2nd page, i decided to get spend some of my time to get a link list together and other info thats quite useful.


How to use Google to search on these forums.

For example, you now want to find a whine thread about Xin and how much he needs a nerf, what do you is go to http://www.google.com and in the search field you type this

Quote:
site:leagueoflegends.com/board/ "Xin"
That tiny bit will search these forums for the word Xin, clearly you can be more exact when you search, but this will do as an example, now if you wanna search for something els all you have to do is replace the word "Xin" with lets say "Garen".

Your google search should then end up abit like If you want to search a special place of the forums these codes will help

Announcements General Discussion Guides & Strategy
Clan & Team Recruitment
Help & Support Bug Reports Champion Feedback

(Please note that the section search might be abit glitchy)

These are just a few threads, but if you approve of this post i will most likely update it later on, and if Riot approves of this could you be so kind to make it sticky, just for the time being.

If you like this vote a + on it.

Just fix the search button IMO.

And this is not 100% as good as the forums inbuilt search, but it will suffice for now when the search is broken.

This will probably never be read by anyone wanting to find information. Sad truth, but I'll give it a thumbs up anyhow.
