Good morning,

Being new to the forum I wonder if it is possible to make a search based on keywords. I have already gone through the resources but did not find the subject I am looking for.

Thanks for your answer!

The search function uses both keywords and a search by member option....

Yebbut, you have to be in 'Forums' to be able to see the search option.

F'rexample, if you're in 'What's New' you can't see the search option :wasntme::wasntme:

I can see and use search (the magnifying glass symboi) when I am in "What's New"?

Thanks for your replies. I did find the answer after posting my thread, as I was going through the forums and noticed the Search forums section on top.

Doh, never knew what that was for - being a Luddite, I have always used the written word :emo::emo::emo:

Another option for searching the forums is Google. In the search bar, if you type "site:gscalecentral.net" (without quotes) followed by what you want to search for. E.g. "site:gscalecentral.net track cleaning" By doing this, Google will only give your search results from this site. You get the power of Google behind your search which presents the results in a clearer way (for me at least)
