    Searches are still a bit clunky. For example, in the Blogs section, there is a search button, but it searches the entire site. There are over 400 blogs. How does one search for blogs by a specific member?

    I already tried many different methods, but it still the same as you did that I can't reach the target.

    I just went to the forum search ...

    There was a tab to search BLOG entries.

    Upon clicking that, the next page had keywords, members name (or multiple members), and newer than which I took was a date field.

    I just did a search on millman with hgmjr as the member. I got one result.

    I did a search on 555 with Bill_Marsden and Georacer. I got Bill's three blogs and nothing from Georacer.

    The Search Blog Entries seems to work ok.
     
    jrap, Georacer and ScottWang like this.

    JoeJester, thank you.
    I just tried it as you said and it works, the problem was that I didn't get into the page to find the function for "Search Blog Entries".

    Thanks. I was using the search tool on the upper right when on the blog page. The "search forums" tab is only available while on the Forums tab, so I too missed it. John

    Hello,

    To do an advanced search you click on the search on the top right and then on more.
    A new page will open with a couple of tabs on top for the kind of search you want to do.
    One of the tabs is a blog search.
    You can give the search-words, name and a newer than date in the three lines.

    I noticed that the search will not work on my linux PC in QupZilla and Konquerer.
    The search does work in Opera and Firefox.
