Search menu vs. Advanced Search

The tech guys on the forum has verified that the options on the search box on the blue menu are set to only search back 3 months. This was done for performance reasons.

If you need to do a full search deeper than 3 months then choose the 'advanced search' (small link under search box in blue menu) and put keywords into that page and it will search back all the way to the beginning (or as long as you set options to)

It's relatively easy. Go to Google, type your search terms and then append the following to the search: site:solsticeforum.com

It is easy when you know how..
At least this will be around permanently, and I won't have to search for it.
Thanks...
