Just a reminder that the forum has a useful search function. When you want to ask a question, it may be good to use the search function first to find posts that have already been made relating to your question or problem. You may be able to find answers quickly, without having to make a new post.
The search function can be accessed from the forum's main page:
You don't have to fill out every field on the search form, just the ones that are relevant to you. Then you can easily read the relevant posts & threads that come up.
If you are on mobile, the search can be found under the navigation menu on the main page.
It IS very practical - many times I haven't had to make a post about my question at all, and in some cases it's just nice to add my question to the bottom of an already relevant thread instead of making a new thread.
Just takes a little bit of practise to get the most out of it, like at the bottom you can choose whether it displays the results as threads or posts, and that can make a big difference depending on what kind of info you're looking for.
It would be brilliant of the results that come up actually have an answer. I use the search function every time i have a question. Been trough like 20, sometimes 40 pages of results. But often i bump onto a question that is asked, not answer at all, yet it's closed. So there is no answer and no possibility to add your question in since there is a lock on it. Doesn't help much and there are tons of topics like that...I've been using the search option frequently in the last week but haven't found an answer to even half of the questions i have. I'm still looking since nobody answered the ones i did post yet.
