    The search function on the forums allow you to look for threads and posts both in the forums and in profile posts.

    To use the search function, click in the Search... box at the top right of the forums. This will display a pop-up dialogue box with various options. Some additional options are available depending on where you are searching from.

    The Tapatalk search function isn't very good. If you need to search when using it, do so from the Forums view that shows all of the forums. It seems to work better there but it's still not as good as the proper forum search.
