First, with regard to a question on how to return to the top of the message board, the way seems to be to click on "Message Board" at the right side of the top menu. As to search, check out the Search function at the top right of the screen. If you click through to the Advanced Search, you can choose to limit your search to Message Board specifically. Also note the options including searching for a word or a phrase. I tried it and it seems to work OK when I tested. Let me know how it works for you. Also note the different tabs for searching for content or people, etc.

Doesn't Seem to Work

I tried searching for "Peekskill" since I remember a long thread this summer about getting around the construction there. Unfortunately, only one thread comes up, from this summer, but a different one.

Also, no tabs showing in Firefox.

Additionally, line breaks still not applied in posts.

searching for threads this summer

This summer's haven't been fully loaded yet. We did the download from the old site too early it seems. It needs to be done again to catch much of the summer.

uh...nope, sorry

Jim,

I just did an Advanced Search for the phrase "This summer's haven't been fully loaded yet." which appears in your message (above, posted ~9 minutes ago). I restricted the Search to the Message Board via that oh-so-obvious selection tool (that's a joke, btw).

Results? None. Nada. Zip. Zilch. "The search criteria were not found" or something to that effect.

As the kids these days like to say: Epic Fail.

But I know you'll work it out, just providing you with some additional data points. Good luck!

Search - Jim R

Betsy and Bob et. al.

I just did a search in the regular search field on "Central Park" and got dozens of hits. As to the advanced search, I also haven't had much success when using restrictions. I will try to learn more about that. In general, this search feature is called a "keyword search" so I wouldn't expect it to search by username. I need to learn more about it.

Log In

EACH and EVERY time I try to log on to this message board my password is not accepted and it IS correctly input. I then have to Request a New Password and again insert the SAME password which then works. What gives?

I tried to do a MB search by author's name (someone who has posted very frequently in the last couple of days) and got 0 results. Please advise. Thanks.
