I want to know too!!! I posted this afternoon and come back tonight and I am oh so lost and confused. I guess I'll have to try and figure things out in the morning.

Go right up this page a bit to where you see "find messages about" and just under that click on archives...I'm doing that now to find my SS posts from today :o(

Oh my goodness, this is going to be a nightmare! *L* I had to email Stephanie to ask her about a post to me from an archived board, because even though I figured out how to look through SOME of the archives, it only takes you back about 2 weeks and you have to search and search through a ton of messages to find what your looking for...and then it wasn't there! I sure hope this gets easier as we go along!!!!!!!

If you go up to the bottom of the off-white box, there is a link called outline view. Click on that and it brings up a different view of this board. That appears to include all the posts at least back to Tuesday sometime.

I did a find messages about last night using my username and came up with 10 hits. Most of those did have my username in the title. I also tried searching on 12 x 12 and came up with 291. I think it does show everything, but it shows it by "discussion thread." So if some started a main post and there were a hundred posts under that post that mentioned 12 x 12, you would just see the main post in the search results. You can read through the posts under that. It also appears to me that the archive right now just goes back to the beginning of the year.

I don't know. It's wierd....umm, I mean different.
