Surface the search capability in the forum earlier.

 

Most times I am looking for somthing its because I dont know what YOU call it. so there for I probably dont know what section to go in and search.

 

Put search in the root of forums and allow a search of a forum or multiple forums.

Hi rukidding,

 

Budone is right -- the drop down menu right next to the search button offers the ability to perform a search of the entire community, a specific category, a board, or you can search just for a user. Hope this helps.:smileyhappy:

As someone who has used many BBS's, forums, boards, and communities over the years, I don't understand the terms board and community -- esp. when searching -- used here.

 

I also don't know what part of this community to post about accessories -- probably general cell phones, etc.???

Hi Bernie157

 

As Budone stated, "Community" refers to the entire forum.

 

Right now you posted in the "Suggestions for this community" board. Category is the section where several boards are found. In the "Suggestions for this community" board's case, the category is called Verizon Wireless Community.

 

Hope this answers your question! :smileywink:
