How do I search previously asked questions?

It would be really useful to see if someone has already asked and received answers to my question.

There are two main ways to search previously asked questions, but both begin with typing in the search bar.

1. Suggested previous questions based on title

As you type, you will see blue text appearing below the search bar. These are previously asked questions that match the keywords in your question title. You can click on the titles in blue, or, if none of them match, click on ‘Ask Your Question’. This will then take you through to the question detail page. In this image, I am searching for information on the cost of solar pumps.

2. Keyword search of all previous questions and answers

When you have typed a word or phrase into the search bar, you can also simply press ‘enter’ on your keyboard, and this will return a list of all content that contains those keywords. As such, you end up with more results than the previous approach.

When I pressed ‘enter’ after typing in the question on the cost of solar pumps, I see the following list:

Hope that helps. Please let us know if you have any comments or suggestions.
