    Sometimes I read a useful post and want to go back to it later but remember little other than poster' name or some keywords. site search field along with few keywords would help me locate the post in a few minutes. But recently the site search feature is not working. Even when I log in and try it is not working for me. Has it been disabled on purpose? Any reason for that?

    @1Sandhya and @Twinkel,

    We are assuming you are referring to "Search Indusladies.com" on top right corner in the Main Menu of the site.

    If yes, it's not working due to some technical issue and we are working to fix it.

    @1Sandhya,

    Alternately, to locate posts / threads by a specific poster, you may try using the following searches:

    1. Use the "search" in the 2nd Menu bar from the top of the page, that starts with - What's New, UserCP, etc.
    There you can search by 'keywords' you remember seeing in the thread, or by the poster's username.

    2. Use the "Quick Links" in the same 2nd Menu bar from the top of the page.
    Quick Links -> Search Members -> Give the poster's name - it will take you to the poster's profile page. There you can view posts / threads made by the poster and browse thro' to find what you are looking for.

    @Laxmi,
    For info. Custom Search!

    @Induslady, yes your assumption was correct. That button was what I was referring to.

    Thanks for your help. I am surprised I never noticed that second search button in all these years! It serves my purpose adequately.

    @1Sandhya and @Twinkel,

    "Search Indusladies.com" appears to be working now. Please check.
