Martin, I don't use the forum search function anymore since it always seemed a bit hit and miss. I find it easier to use a Google site search. The method below has appeared in this thread a couple of times previously, but, ironically, it proves to be a hard term to search for, so I can't credit the original poster(s).

Just copy/paste this line into Google and change the last word. For e_r's search you would try something like:

Code:
site:http://forum.skyscraperpage.com noirish cordova
You can vary the pattern a little by adding extra keywords at the end, or search for compound terms by adding quotes, eg.:

Code:
site:http://forum.skyscraperpage.com noirish "hotel cordova"
You'll probably get multiple results for the same post/page, but it works for me. It's not 100% perfect, but it's better than the forum search.
