- Active Topics (Displays the most active topics on the forum for the date range specified: 1 Day, 2 Days, 7 Days, or 14 Days. Click on the links given to go to the specific topic, forum, or the profile of the user making the post.)
- Recent Posts (Displays the most recent posts and active topics for the date range specified. As in the Active Topics search feature, you will find clickable links for the topic, forum, or poster name.)
- Use the Quick Search feature to enter a keyword to search for a particular post in the messageboard. If you just want to search for a post in the forum you're currently in, put a check mark next to Search only this forum. Clicking on the Search button located below that will begin the search.
