    When will searching be available? Is there any other way to search past threads in the lounge?

    TIA,
    Night

    Re: Searching

    So far as I know, no date set for getting search back in working order yet.
    Everyone is patiently waiting for this valuable feature to return. Hang in there. <img src=/S/bummer.gif border=0 alt=bummer width=15 height=15>

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Re: Searching

    Remember the "Star Posts" are there as a quick reference on many subjects. You can always suggest adding a useful post to this list. Mind you this doesn't help unless you notice the post while it is still current.

    As a very crude method I "flick" through each page in the index and use the Edit - Find (on this page) Crtl+F is the keyboard shortcut.

    This is not very quick and it does not search the body so is very limited in its scope. However I have found some things with this method.

    Re: Searching

    Leif has been very good at keeping the list of star posts in <post#=237479>post 237479</post#>. He has also made it a "sticky" post (meaning it is always the first post in this board) for easy access to our list of useful posts.
    The one problem remains however, for those star posts that have been <!post=moved off the site, 269652>moved off the site<!/post> for performance issues until we fix our popularity problem... <img src=/S/crazy.gif border=0 alt=crazy width=15 height=15>

    Re: Searching

    As a first timer to the lounge, I have spent almost an hour trying to puzzle out the Search functionality from the FAQs until I finally stumbled onto this forumn in the message board.

    If Search is not available then it would greatly aid us newcomers if the FAQs reflected this.

    It was only recently that the <font color=red>NewsFlash</font color=red> at the top of the Main Menu had changed from a message regarding the lack of the search ability. I'm sure an Admin will address this soon.
