How to find new content and search like a PRO!

Help Support

This forum has several ways to find content...the best method for everyday use is the UNREAD CONTENT links!  You can find them around the forum with the most obvious one at the right side of the bread crumb bar.  They are also in the forums footer and in he nav bar under the Content Tab.

The Unread Content link will show you all the new content since the last time you visited!  Once you read everything you are interested in, it is good practice to click the MARK SITE READ button to clear all the unread content and reset it for your next visit.

You can also use the activity streams to find content such as threads you started, threads you posted in and content that you follow!  You can even create custom streams and save them to find exactly what you are looking for!

You can also use the forum features to search for all sorts of information!  You'll find several different areas that allow you to search the forum and even 2 different search applications!

First is the Forum Quick Search Box: This search function can be found in the top right side of the header.  You may have to scroll all the way to the top of the forum to see it.  Clicking in the search box opens a drop down menu with search options.  It is set default to search everywhere but you can select more options to fine tune where you are searching.View attachment 45440

Clicking on the magnifying glass icon will open up the advanced search screen with many options to fine tune your search!

You can also access the advanced search screen from the link in he nav bar under the CONTENT Tab.
