I hate to ask such a basic question, but I cannot find any search function for the forumns. Seems I have used it in the past and had problems finding it then.  Is there one? Is it right in front of my nose?  I really cannot find it and hope to save some time by searching other threads for problems I have etc.  Please help, it must be right in front of me, and just not seeing it.
Thanks.

Top left of every page! With the tabs you can filter the results by area (wiki, blog, forums) etc.

Thanks, that does look good. Not sure why so many mulitple entries of things though, like Bugs, Feature Reqs etc. But a good way to search the general forum or forums that we use here. I have bookmarked it. Thanks.

Also if you make sure you include the word AND between your search terms it helps a lot.  Otherwise it’s not a very intelligent search funciton. Try searching for any topic with “image” without using the word AND ... yikes.

Or just use Google with a specially formatted site search like so. (Edit: Magento boards format the code and break the link) You can just go to Google and search:

keyword site:www.magentocommerce.com/boards

Is there any place that tracks all of your replies, without subscribing to every thread you’ve posted in?

I thought it should be in your profile page, but if you click on your name at the bottom of the forum (if you agreed to show your name there) or in one of your posts, you’ll get to a page that has all your information, including a link for all your posts.
