Question Forum search

Question.

I am unable to find the search link to search forums (subject,author). The only search link is the keyword search. Is there a setting I need, or permission to have the search link displayed.

Thanks,
Ron

Thanks. I tried that and got a permission denied message. I am registered and have been able to search up till now.

Thanks,

Question

I'm using windows XP home edition. It sounds like I need to contact an adminitrator as my account doesn't seem to have permissions to search.

I believe it has something to do with the permission on the account, although I can't figure out what.

The workaround I used was to create another account using another email address I had. Using this account I was able to use the forum search option and the link appeared on the page.

Not pretty, but it worked.

Nobody can search; this is by design, in hopes of reducing the cost of bandwidth for the site.

Many folks put up websites and get scared when the bandwidth costs start going up.

That's why we can't post photos, also.
