Hello

With the new mobile friendly ProZ.com design, there is a search button (the well-known ice cream scoop icon) at the top right corner of the page, but it only offers term search, jobs search, and global search (and it now uses Google to provide the search results). What happened to forum search?

Look for the search box with "Search forums" in it, and underneath that "Advanced search".

Hi everyone,

As Michael points out, the forum search tool is still available at the top, right corner of forum pages. The other (bigger) magnifying glass icon at the top, right corner of the site is the one used for general searches within ProZ.com (results are shown through Google).



If you do notice any issues with the optimization of forums though, let us know by posting to the corresponding forum thread at http://www.proz.com/topic/304493

Thanks!

Lucia
