Not really if you are on a phone. On a tablet or laptop click in the search oval that is part of the blue bar above. You might have to scroll to the top, because this search is not the one pinned at the top of the page. Select search in this forum. Then put in your search term(s).

Is there a way to search the forum you are currently in?

Welcome back to the Cruise Critic message boards! emo34.gif  I see it has been a while since you have posted.

 

There are two Search features. The one for the Cruse Critic website is the large blue magnifying glass upper right of the page under the top blue line.

Then for the message boards there is the smaller Search bubble with a small black magnifying glass under the Notifications bell and your User Name in the second blue line.

It can make a difference on how you use it and what you see depending on the type of device you are using such as desktop, laptop, tablet, iPhone, etc. I do not have a smart phone so I cannot help you there.

 

For me on my desktop or laptop, I click the small Search bubble. Type in your search term or terms. Click This Forum. Also, there are times when you need to enter your terms surrounded by quotation marks - like, "Miami hotels" - you get different results than if you entered just the two words. This is because quotation marks are used for phrase searching. That way your results will be just posts or titles containing the phrase and not ALL the posts in that forum containing the word Miami AND all the posts containing the word hotels.

Then click the little magnifying glass. When the list appears, I find it best to change the SORT BY feature to Date from Relevancy so the newest will be at the top of the list of threads or posts containing your search term or terms.

I hope this info will help you use the Search feature to obtain the information you seek and glad to have you back aboard Cruise Critic!emo35.gif

 

Happy sails,
