At the bottom of the forums there is still the sentence saying that tracking the forums is for Platinum only. Also in the FAQs.

How do I search the forums? Where is the search function?

Tracking and searching Jul 2, 2003

Hi Holger

You're talking about two different things.

Tracking allows you to get a notification when there's a new post in a topic you're interested in.

The "Search" window is in the left of the screen (search and go), and you can put in it, for instance, the name of a pro, a word you remember has been discussed, like "pop up", "Blue Board" or "Platinum". And you're going to have a page that shows you where the information has been found (directory, forums, Blue Board, FAQs ...)

I can't answer to "why it appears that tracking forum is restricted to Platinum members", but I think it's just because it hasn't been restricted any more for just a few days.

Thank you! Jul 2, 2003

Hi Claudia,

Yes, I am asking two different questions.

Thank you for the explanation.
Of course I see the Search-field now. I don\'t know why I did overlook that!

search field Jul 3, 2003

I was looking for the search field too. Would it be possible to move it to the top bar (next to support perhaps?) so that it is more immediately visible? Or even above the advertisement.
