didn't we used to have a search function for a particular forum or search all forums ???
If you just want to search a particular forum, go to the first page of the forum you are wanting to search. Scroll past the list of threads, until you see a search box to the right of Today's Birthdays. Use that box for searching just one forum.
Here is a link that might be useful: Example...your posts found only at Suggestions.
so many things have changed on my computer lately
The old http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/suggest/msg031543312186.html?2 seems hard to find.
http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/comphelp/ seems more obscured than it was before.
