Worked very well.
Now the Advanced Search doesn't show me the threads I've posted to.
I can search for posts that I've posted, and that shows me the posts I've made, but not the threads. There are a few threads that I'm curious about when someone posts something new to, that I have no way of finding now.
Also, again within Advanced Search, if I click on 'titles', it says:
No posts found for "title:(Search AVS Forum)"

Why couldn't the forum have been kept vB?
Now that I know a little more about the "Huddler platform" and how all the Huddler sites have a nearly identical look and feel, I realize what kept me away from signing up on other Huddler forums - the look and feel.
Like Bob I also searched by user name, and would take a quick glance down the list of threads. Threads with new posts were very easy to see, due to the bold/enlarged font. I could then click the little icon a the front of the thread title and go to the "first unread post".
I know we have a new software, but every other forum seems to have something similar, with vB being the easiest to use IMHO. I would think this software would have a similiar function, but it seems I am not the only one who can't find it.
If anyone comes up with a solution, comparable search, or work around, please post it here.
