Perhaps I'm going blind, but I can't find the board's search function anywhere. Please help before I make an appointment with my optometrist!

Thanks!

It doesn't show up for me until I hit the "Logout" in the blue stripe. Apparently one has to be logged out to search. When I log back in it is gone again.

Not normally, no. There is a phpBB Forum Guide on the Manuals tab, maybe there is something there. What browser are you using?

I'll guess that's a function of the font size in your browser. If using Firefox, try hitting the Plus or Minus buttons or Ctrl+ or Ctrl-.

The search function is available at all times. I would suspect UM is correct that it is a font size or zoom issue for you.

Well, I've tried it on 3 different computers (I have 3 Linux boxes :happy: ) with 3 screen resolutions 2 versions of Firefox (4.0.1 & 3.6.17) and Google Chrome. Using MInt 10, Xubuntu 11, Mepis 11 and Puppeee. I've tried zooming in and out. They all do the same thing.

It's not a big deal, but it does seem a bit strange that others can see it while logged in. Thanks for all your responses.

It would be interesting to see a screen shot of what you are seeing.

Yes, we probably need a visual since it's always shown up for us either way.
