Searching Forum Topics
« on: July 05, 2010, 12:10:16 PM »
Is there a way to search the forums for posts that apply to the subject I'm looking for?

Having scrolled through a bunch of pages looking for posts related to what I'm looking for i see a number of repeat posts.  It seems it would save us newbees time and the experienced guys seeing the same posts over and over again.

Just asking,

DD

In the top right hand corner is the "Search" link.

I just removed the simple "Search" link we had in the top right corner and replaced it with a "Search Forum" box.

Lets see how that works for everyone.
