Search Function?

There used to be a way (I think it was "advanced search) where you could put in a search term and a member name to find a term that one person wrote about.  Do we still have anything like that?  I see how I can search a term and I see how I can search a member, but I don't see how I can search both at the same time.   Does that make sense?  

For example, let's say I want to search myself (Acro) and something I wrote about like "Anubias".  Is there a way to search the word "Anubias" from the topics I started or posted in?

Yes there is... It looks different than before... Let me give you screen shots :) 

First click on the magnify thing next to the search box.

Then you can click on the search by Author....

Then you can type what you are looking for in the content search bar. 

Then the Search content is on the bottom right to search :)

Let me know if that is what you're looking for ? :)

Thanks, it worked!  :D

I have another question:  Is there a way to search all posts for a single member?  Kind of like the "Activity" listing under a profile, but with a longer history?

You should be able to click in the Profile of the person you want. Then over on the right hand side is See there Activity :) Click that and now you have a lot of different ways of searching through the posts. topics and such.
