    I have been a member for over 10 years and I use to post often....but....Now that I can't even read the posts because they are in such horrible colors/non-contrasting fonts. I have stayed away from contributing and sharing, (I won't be continuing as a member after this subscription expires).

    Now I cant figure out how to search a subject? Any help from the owner(s) of this very awkward site? How does one search?

    Leaving the forum ME

    Good day Kerry,
    Searching is certainly a bit different than the old site format, but it does work. Usually I tend to search in specific areas and so I use the "advanced" or "more" functions of search. To use this go to the search box in the upper right corner and click the "search" text adjacent to the magnifying glass. Here a window will pop up revealing more options... The "more" text is a button and will navigate you to another screen where you can narrow your search to certain areas. Also on this main search box there is a small arrow and clicking it will reveal some "useful searches". I have added a few pictures to help explain my comments.

    Happy searching "you" and I hope my comments help!

    Cheers,

    Sam

    And that is a better lesson in searching than I could have ever provided.

    It can be a little confusing at first, but once you get the hang of it, I think it's a better search function than the old software.

    Others here might disagree with that assessment. :D

    You can also try some of the other color schemes, might make it easier to read.

    I like Blue.

    Look lowest right corner for color scheme choices in the little box.

    You know you can change the new style to the old style at the bottom of any page, right? Just click the button on your screen that says "New" at the very bottom RIGHT. The old way will come back . If you want to go back to new, click "Old" on the bottom LEFT.
