    Man, trying to find my previous posts in this forum is like pulling teeth. Why isn't there an actual "Search" bar with "Advanced Search" along side "Home, Forum, Active Topics" etc. That window to the right with the magnifying glass is kinda vague and useless.

    That's a problem with several forum packages and some ignore words with fewer than 4 letters which adds to the problem. I have found that doing the search using Google can help. The search would take the form of using the search term or phrase followed by a space and "site:androidtablets.net" without the quotes.
