Maybe, I'm overlooking it. But, is there no way to search forums for topics? I don't want to start redundant threads when my questions may have allready been answered somewhere.

Thanks

Thanks calvin2hikers. But, this is all I have in the top right corner of my page.

Chat[4] ?FAQ User Control Panel

I'm not referring to FAQ telling you how to use the forum. I want to search for threads about certain topics. For instance. I don't want to start a thread on books about Frank, if one allready exists.

Don't know what to tell you, I have Search right after FAQ. I knew you weren't referring to the FAQ.

I don't have that on my page. Maybe, that's one of the functions you don't receive until you hit 10 posts after the latest forum upgrade? Thanks for the replies anyway!!

It could be that, but that seems like a strange function to prevent new members from using...

It could just be a glitch I guess.

Prior to today, as a non-registered guest, I was freely able to search the forum.
Subsequent to today's registration, the search tab has disappeared. :?

After completing my tenth post, the Search and Members tabs appeared, among other things.
