How to perform a search?

One of the key benefits of the discussion board format is that it enables commonly asked questions to be answered once, for the benefit of all.  Before posting your question, it is always worth checking to see if it has already been asked - and answered!  You can do this via the Search link on the Menu Bar.  Various options are available, both for how the search term is specified and for controlling how much of the forums database you want to search.  This is where the specificity of topic subjects is important; making it much easier to locate precisely what it is you're after from a list of search results.  The demonstration below will show you the basics of performing a search. 

1).Click on the "Search" link from the menu bar at the top of the screen.  It is seen below boxed in blue.
