    Hi everyone,

    We have upgraded our search. You can now search images. For example: Search Results | Orchids Forum is a search for just Yellow Orchids.

    Please let me know if you see any issues or other ways we can improve the search.

    Brent, it works great using the link you provided above but by just going to the search function I can't find it. Maybe I just don't know how to find it?

    You don't need to go to the search function. Just type it in the search box and it will auto go :). I will see how to make it default to the new search though.

    Any chance of getting back the list of related threads at the bottom of the page? It is easy to find similar threads and encourages people to read more theads.

    Ah, I see it now. The "images" option comes up after the search results are listed. Thanks. Works great.

    I ditto Marni's request.

    I guess I am doing something wrong, all I get no matter what I click on is, Sorry no information found. I'll keep trying, there must be a way if you'll are getting results.

    Anita, here is what works for me.

    In the search box type in a color, say "orange". Make sure none of the little boxes in the search function are checked. Click "search".

    When the search results come up there will be a box that shows what your search criteria was (ie. orange). Immediately above that box is a selection for "images" or "posts". Click on images and it should bring up lots of photos of the posts of orange flowers.

    I hope it works for you.
