I have noticed many requests for help on the forum on topics that have already been covered in previous posts. Where members have a query, they will find there is a high probability the answer to their query can be found on the forum by careful use of this very useful Search function. Where an answer cannot be found in this way, it is then members should post their question on the forum to seek assistance from members and/or the Forum Support Team.

Here is a quick introduction I've put together on how to use the Forum Search facility:

First click on the ‘Search’ option - circled on the image below.

You can either search all the forum topics or, by clicking the drop-down arrow, any individual forum topic.

You can also choose whether you want to match all the words in your search criteria, any word or match the exact phrase. As seen below, which option you choose can make a big difference in the number and relevance of the results you get back.
