Searching Resources

    Does anybody else find it harder to search for Resources on the new-style Resource Bank? Please TES, bring back the option to include keywords when uploading a resource. I'm sure that used to make it easier to find exactly what you were looking for.

    This used to drive me mad when they first introduced it, but thanks to other posters I've discovered the old style keywords is still there, you just have tohoose that option.
    So for example if I wanted your VCOP quickfire activities I'd input that into the search box. Just tried that & 'no matches'.
    So tried VCOP activities & it comes up with the usual sub-divisons Early Years, Primary 1 & 2 Secondary etc.
    BUT if you look Top Left, just below the glack bar you'll spot it says Subjects & Topics / Keyword matches (5). Now click on Keyword matches, that particular resource is 12th down, with others of your above it.
    Hope that's clear & is of help.

    Thanks very much for that. I've had a play around with Resources, and can finally find what I'm looking for.
    I can't believe I've missed that keywords box every time I've searched for resources lately. It looks so big once you know that box is there! [​IMG]

    Used to make me so frustrated I actually wrote a new thread 'for the attention of TES staff'. Like you I felt really silly when I discovered it was there all the time.
    Apologies for all the typos in previous post, glad you were able to follow.
