1. Do you mean Advanced Search here on DU?

It's in the upper right hand corner of the site. That allows you to search for anything posted here - by Forum, subject, date and/or author. The only drawback is if you don't get what you're looking for the first time, you can't edit, you just have to start over with a new Search. Hope that helps.

2. Thank you so much.

I felt kind of silly, I should have asked sooner.

3. No problem, it does take some getting used to, but I find it invaluable

I know a lot of DUers aren't aware of it, so you're not alone. And it works best, the more specific you can be. Sometimes it takes me more than one try.

4. Also be aware that if you use the mobile format

the search feature isn't visible.

You can change the format your device uses in the Preference area under My Account.

Yikes I just changed to try it, that was overwhelming, I am so used to the mobile version.

6. Was this why you didn't see it?

Took me awhile to figure it out. Frustrating to only have cell phone for internet!

7. Yes and I have a tablet, which is also set to mobile for DU.

I also have access to our home computer, laptop, but I prefer my phone. I don't really do anything where I need anything else usually.

9. It disturbed my eyes, I used to have it on that setting

until last year. I felt the need to urgently back out of there and back to the comfort of the mobile setting.

10. You should probably bookmark the link to the search page if it isn't visible to you.

https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=search

You could bookmark that in your browser, or make a DU bookmark of this thread so you can find it if you are browsing from another device.

Or make a DU bookmark of my reply so the title is more descriptive.
