Hi
I use the search facility of F1 quite often--will that change with the upgrade? re past queries. Alan

yes and no. we've been thrashing out the new board a bit. still a few things to be tweaked.

the new search system is quite good but not perfect. no need to panic ;-)

Alan, I use the Press F1 search quite a lot too and I hate the way it displays its results.

I'm pleased to report that the results on the new forum are much more user friendly. Not perfect, but you get to see the whole thread instead of an individual post like you do now. Also, your requested search word is highlighted in the results making it easier to pick them out.

The only possible bugbear is that the results can't be sorted in order of date like now, but in order of relevance which is probably an improvement. In any case it is a definite improvement on what we currently have.

The Gnomes tell us that all the posts from the old forum will be transferred to the new one so you still have access to past queries.
