The search box in the top right of your screen is OK, when you understand how it works. The most important lesson is that THE SEARCH BOX AT THE TOP RIGHT OF YOUR SCREEN IS CONTEXT SPECIFIC. Specifically:
- If you are viewing a thread, it only searches that thread.
- If you are viewing a board, it searches all threads in that board.
- If you are out at the main menu, it will search the whole forum.
The "Search" button in the menu bar searches the whole forum & is more configurable, as shown above.
Searches are caps inspecific, which is good, e.g., "FUR" = "fur".
No such thing as aliases, so you gotta look for the exact term, e.g., it will never know to look for 'cord' when you search for 'cable'.
