FAQ #215

Should FAQ #215 (How do I search my journal? How can I find a particular entry or comment?) be updated now that the magnifying glass is back? Perhaps also with instructions for how to activate the search for your journal?

Here's what I propose be added (with heavy editing, of course, because I'm not very good at this):


As a courtesy to users, LiveJournal provides access to a search function performed by LJ Seek. You can search your public journal entries by clicking on the magnifying glass found on your User Info page. In order to use this function, you will need uncheck the "Minimize your journal's inclusion in search engine results" option on your Edit Personal Information page. For information on this option, please see What can I do to help stop my journal from ending up on search engines?

Please note that this search function is operated by LJ Seek, not LiveJournal. If you are having problems, please consult LJ Seek's FAQ.
