Thanks for the suggestion. I am not getting it to work. I have gone to two locations. One is the small print of my name which is above the larger square that has my first initial in. If I hover over that small print it a drop-down appears which has a search icon (magnifying glass) in it. The second option I tried is to click on the large coloured square with my first initial in it. That also produces a search icon. However in both cases I cannot enter text into that area - I can only seem to click on the search icon. That takes me to a page that shows all the messages I have written. I was wanting to find messages in a given topic. I am trying to follow a topic about various shore excursions along the way but seem to be unable to enter the name of a port, for example, and get a result from within the topic/thread unless I have written about it.
