  5. Printing:  It is usually possible to print the entire page via your browser's print function. The Listed Homes page has issues with printing from the browser's print function. It and and a few other pages contain a  Print Page button instead.  If a page has this please use it. It will print the page without any menus. The table of Listed Homes prints best in landscape mode which you will have to select in your browser's print dialog box. Also several pages end with a Printer Friendly Page button, this button will bring up the contents of this page as a PDF page so that you can print it or email it easily. If you need a PDF viewer, you can get one from Adobe for free.

Help with Search

In the upper right corner of the screen is a text box and the word Search. Typing a word in the box and clicking Search, will produce a list of pages containing that word. Entering multiple words in the box will search for pages containing ANY of the words. Adding a "+" in front of a word means that the word must be included on the page. Adding a "-" in front of a word means that it should not be on the page. Upper/lower case doesn't matter when searching. You can't use quotes indicate that words must be adjacent. The following examples work on this site:

  • Searching for Dotti Dave  will produce a list of pages containg either other Dave OR Dotti
  • Searching for +dotti +dave will produce a list of pages containg both Dave AND Dotti
  • Searching for +Dave -Dotti  will produce a list of pages containg Dave and NOT Dotti
