search for images in topics, how?

Post by ChrisGreaves »

(See also "search for keywords in topics, how?")

A correspondent has posted a reply using an attached image; the image shows up as "PineTree.jpg", which leads me to believe that it is an image that I posted sometime since February 4th 2019.
I search the Lounge for the post in which the image first appeared.

Method 1: type "pinetree.jpg"(with double quotes) in the search box, top-right corner of my screen. This results in :-
Search found 1454 matches: "pinetree.jpg".
Now my posts are good, but they are not that good. :grin:

Method 2:In Firefox browser "pinetree.jpg" site:https://eileenslounge.com
Choosing Images brings me to a :sad: and "Sorry, no results here."
Choosing All brings me to several screens of results, but far too many.

I scratch my head at this, because my correspondent has posted a reply using an attached image; the image shows up as "PineTree.jpg", and I would expect to find that post pretty easily.

Method 3: As for method1 but I restrict my seatch to the Scuttlebut forum
"Search found 411 matches: "pinetree.jpg""

:scratch: :scratch:

I'm curious, is all; nothing critical riding on this. But how does one locate an image file in Eileen's Lounge?

Thanks
Chris

Typing pinetree.jpg in the Search box yields this for me: :grin:

The index mechanism of the Lounge only indexes the author, subject and text of posts, not the images.
A Google search results in

Perhaps an incorrect assumption has led you down a rabbit hole.

Instead of borrowing a photo previously posted, perhaps that member found the tree in Google Maps... :scratch:

Thanks Hans. I am glad to hear that Google (site:?) search failed you. I suppose that the bots haven't got around to reindexing yet.

Emboldened I repeated my search, not by typing, but by copy-and-paste, with the results we see above.
References appear to be breeding like, well, rabbits.
More about that later.
Thanks

'Twould not be the first time. I remember back in 1965 .....
The thought that it might not be me as source flashed through my mind; I have taken several photos of that tree over the years, but could not remember one taken from that angle; hence my curiosity.

This one I took while on holiday October 2018; I thought that there were tree seedlings growing in the eavestroughs. It was three months after I had moved in that I realized that there were no eavestroughs!

And this one was taken by the real estate agent, before the oil tank was a glimmer of hatred in my eye. What a desolate spot this backyard was; I had visions of miles and rolling miles of tomatoes, cucumbers, peas, broccoli etc, but instead ended up with one-eighth of an acre of slugs, snails, and cabbage moths. Sigh.
We have a fox trots thorough each night, but if I do spot a rabbit I'll be on my bike and down to Foodland for a $5 carton of red wine suitable for purposes of marinade :yep:
I could save the rest of the bladder for when you arrive. :yep: :yep: :yep:
Cheers

Interesting that your oil tank apparently does not have some form of a trough to contain its complete capacity in the [inevitable] event of a leak or similar disaster.
Perhaps that's why it bears such a strong resemblance to a barbecue?!

Think how stupid the average person is, then realise that half of the population are stupider than that.

John, you must have better eyesight than me - from that distance, I can't tell if it is a Bunded Tank or not!

Not my oil tank anymore. Last seen out at the metal yard of the Town Council Tip.
Except for the framing; that is stashed away on David's property somewhere.
And a barbecue bears no resemblance to an oil tank.
Oil tanks are made of steel, whereas my barbecue is made from fourteen old house bricks that accompanied a few buckets of rhubarb that arrived in Bernard's truck with a load of grass clippings two years ago ...
Cheers
