Forum search?

Postby MikeF3261 » Thu Dec 08, 2016 12:24 pm

Hi everyone. I've just joined the forums, but am a long time researcher.

Is there a function on the app to search for names, locations, keywords etc within the various posts? I can't see one and was going to log it as a suggestion to WDYTYA as it seems a major oversight to me, but wanted to check first I wasn't missing a menu option somewhere.

It seems odd to me that you can't search for names that others are interested in, like on other sites/forums, instead having to scroll through realm of posts to see if anyone is on the same research path as you.

Thanks M

I use my phone and at the bottom of the screen is three dots in vertical, this is a menu and does have a search icon in it.

Don't know if this is what you are referring to or not.

There are five Forum categories.

When I click on a Forum, such as this one, General research queries, there is a Search displayed above the topics listed. (I use a desktop computer, not a phone, perhaps the configuration differs.)

Cheers

Thanks both. I was being stupid. On iPad you have to pull the screen right down to access a search bar at the top of the page (it doesn't scroll down with the page, so when you start scrolling through entries you lose the access).

All sorted!
