How do I search the forums?

Update: Kongregate search has been fixed and you can now search the forums from the site. Its only an exact word match search though, so if you need more results you can still use the search provider listed in the next paragraph.

Install the Kongregate forum’s search provider into your browser, found here. You can then search the forums right from your browsers search bar, by setting the provider to “Kongregate Forums”. Note that the provider is just a simple xml file, not an application, so there is no need to be concerned about installing it.

If you don’t wish to install the provider, another way to search is listed below.

Someone is spamming, trolling or flaming in the forums, what do I do?

Please do not feed the trolls. Posting “mods lock please”, “stop spamming” or even “geez nice bump” does not help. Instead, report the post here or point it out to one of the forum mods.

How do I quote someone?

Type bq. at the beginning of a line before the text to be quoted, or use the > character instead.


bq. This is a quote

How to search the Kongregate forums

The user “dazzer” recently said:

Why is there STILL no way to search posts in forums? :(

Short answer: You can search the forums. Skip the “long answer” and use the link below it to search the forums.

Long answer: It’s true that Kong provides no decent forum search features (note to the Kong team: Please finish the card game first. Thanks). I’m sure they’ll have them eventually, but in the mean time, Google provides you with the ability to search the Kong forums without having to download something for your browser.

To search the forums simply use this link.

Just be sure to change the radio button from “Search the Web” to “Search www. /forums”. Unfortunately you have to do that every time you load up the page, but it’s a small price to pay for quality Google search functionality.

Google for president.

Seriously, Momose, I hope you realized you just posted a youtube video of a flash video when you could have just embedded the flash video.

Uh… my bad. I’ll fix it someday

The Kongregate Sidebar is also very useful and should be added. And also, for any reason, there is also a different Kongregate Wiki.
