I was attempting to guide a new user into using the advanced search options today but realised that you can't do it from the Advanced Search Tips link on the search page itself (as it is collapsed by default). I then tried the Help Centre page on searching, however they are not explained here either.
I realise that you can just tell users to go to the search page and click advanced tips, however that seems clunky. It also seems odd that the extended help page would just send you back to the old page after all the effort that has gone to to set it up.
I know there's a lot to be said for keeping the help pages concise for new users to easily navigate, however I would like to suggest that either advanced search options are added in full to the search help page or alternatively a new help entry for advanced search options is created.
