IS IT ME??
using classic theme the SEARCH function does not work from most pages.
same for quick links
IF, you are reading a Thread, there are TWO Search Links.
The lower one says "Search in this Thread",
up above on the Command/Title Line is the normal SEARCH link.
that has worked for me every time I have used it.
You get the best results though if you will open Search, then Advanced which is in that popup Search Window.
It is fast, and equal to using Google Advanced Search
I am using Classic most of the time, my eyes like it better....
but the Search Function is the same in both formats.
Quick Links opens up a very long list of items to select from.
You need to put the mouse cursor over the list, and if you have a roller mouse, just roll the screen up/dn to find what you want.
If no roller mouse, use the up/dn buttons on your keyboard.
