Search Function

I love Chinesepod, but is there anyway you all could improve the search function a bit? I like to use the dialogues as a corpus of clear, translated sentences: i.e. I search for a word or character I'm learning, and the read several examples of how it is used in the dialogues. The difficulty is that for some reason I can't go back to my search results once I've clicked on a hit, and I can't save my search preferences, so I have to recheck "Lesson Dialogues and Vocabulary" with each search. Thanks!

Second this. Also can dialogue and vocab be seperate searches. I mainly just search for a term that will show up in the dialogue (only) - so that I can hear it in context over and over after downloading it.

Hi NYGiants, you can use the "Expand Search" function to search only the lesson dialogue and vocabularies on the search index page at I would recommend using the right-click => open link in new tab function to open the search result in the separate tab so you can keep the search result page.
