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.

Type in your search term, use any of the additional options in the pop-up dialogue box, then click on the Search button.


The More... button gives some additional search options on the Search page:

The Search Everything tab allows you to search specific forums. Click on the forum you wish to search. To search multiple forums, click whilst holding the CTRL button to select the forums you wish to search. Tick the Search child forums as well to search sub-forums. e.g. clicking on Welcome to Senior Gamers with this ticked will search all forums in the Welcome to Senior Gamers section.

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.
