Searching the BBS

The topic of searching the BBS came up in another post, so just thought I would add this to the "How Everything Works" forum. It was a great question, because it's not entirely intuitive because you have to go into a forum first (even though it will still search the entire BBS).

Click on a forum, such as Organizational Information. My experience is that even though you click on a specific forum, the entire BBS will still be searched.

A search field should be on the page:
