I have a post that I want to reply to, but I cannot find it. Is there a search feature on this site? If so, I do not see it. Thanks in advance!

Duh! As soon as I posted this topic, I saw the "Search" button. I am new to this site. Sorry!

No Problem.

Welcome aboard and glad you found it.

I don't see a search button anywhere.

Look for the yellow highlighted text and the smiley face,
then go down one line and there will be a button with a search magnify glass.

I was looking for the same thing, thanks for pointing it out!

Personally, I usually do a CTRL+F and look for the "search" word. Since it was a picture, didn't show.

The search button is a little hidden.

I have not been successful in searching and finding topics using the search. I think the only way that search works, is if there is a way to add keywords such as tags to post and then whenever someone post they would need to fill out the tags or keywords to make the post searchable.

There are two options in Search:
*any search words
*all search words

I tend to use the latter

Sometimes though I want to see answers within a certain time frame
In google you can use {then your search words}

and then use googles filters

This post was helpful for me. I just joined and had the same issue. May want to relocate a different location? Or make it stand out.
