Ways to search



A couple of questions arose recently and I thought it might be helpful for me to flag up  some of the ways to find what you are looking for on the site.

The side bar

The side bar to the right of the main page area gives a list of topics with a number in brackets. This is the number of posts tagged with a relation to this topic. If you click on the topic you will get all the posts listed in that topic.

If you know when the post was posted then you can click into the monthly archives (below the topics list in the side bar) to get all the posts for that month.

Above ‘topics’ in the side bar you will find ‘recent posts’. This lists the titles of the last five or so posts on the site. If you are looking for something very recent then this is a good place to start.

Use the search boxes

Above the logo on the right are two search boxes. You can use either of them to search for a topic or particular dance genre and so on. If you type in say, street dance, then any posts that tagged, street dance, will come up. If you specialise in a strong syllabus dance genre such as ballet or in leisure dance such as Line dancing you can search for related posts.

You can also try searching using the name of a dance step. Remember that step names may differ between dance genres so you might find posts relating to a different form of the step. Take shuffles for example, in tap a shuffle is quite different to the shuffle used in Line dancing. It will also depend on the context of the post where the step name appears. So this type of search might be useful or you might end up with posts that are not really what you are looking for – you never know though, you might flag up something really interesting.

Use the tags below posts

Below each post is a list of buttons including for sharing or to ‘like’ a post. Below them are the tags for the post. Click on any of the tags and you will get all posts with the same tag. So for example, if you click on a tag CPD for Dance Teachers courses, all the posts tagged with this phrase will come up.

I think that’s the main ways you can search on this site. I hope this is useful and helps you to find other useful posts on the site.
