Char and Mike - I have to agree with Cindy. I find it hard to find/retrieve old threads sometimes. How many pages and pages of threads do I have to search through to find the one I want. If the daylily forum was a less busy forum, then it probably wouldn't be a problem locating old threads, but when there are a thousand, two thousand threads to skim through, then it gets more difficult.

I tried doing a search on the daylily forum for the "Daylily Alphabet.... Show Us Your "A's" and it's not coming up. So how do you quickly find a particular thread? If the Daylily Alphabet were all in one place and could be organized alphabetically, that would be awesome!!! But right now it is cumbersome to find old threads.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.

Becky, I've had trouble retrieving the older threads myself. But so far I've had good luck by searching on the simplest things in the titles... for instance "Alphabet" with the letter I was looking for; plus I was finally able to retrieve the F's by searching on "Show Us F's"... But it does seem really hard, especially when I finally dredge one up and the title reads exactly as it should, but it simply didn't work when I typed it.

But the good news is... there are only 26! Hilarious!

If finding the letter she is interested in quickly and without a fuss, I understand that. Just need a little persistence. But I love looking at what people are growing in their yards and seeing the differences. Some are pronounced. Thanks everyone.

Try this...Don't use ATP to search.

Change your prefs to a high number of threads per page. I usually set mine to 500 when searching for a keyword in a thread title.

Then, use your browsers "search" to search for the keyword you are looking for on the first page of threads. If you don't find what you are looking for, go to the second page of 500 threads, use your browsers search again to search that page of 500 titles.

Much quicker and more accurate for me than the ATP search. I use a Mac and I use Safari for a browser. I don't know how to use Firefox or Chrome offhand, but I am sure they would be similar.

If you don't know how to do a search with your browser, a simple question in Google should find the answer for you....
"How to search a web page for a keyword using Chrome"

I use this a lot here, and on other websites.

Sorry, I needed to run some errands this morning.
Dave and I both agreed that threads in the forum do not need a file system.
The ATP forum search function is not perfect. Juli explained an easy more accurate way of searching for older threads. You can also use the same browser search to find information within a thread once you find the thread you are looking for.
Another thought is to "watch" a thread you can do this by clicking the "watch" button at the top of a thread.
And even another way is to "star" a post in a thread you may want to refer back to. Your starred posts can be found in your profile. The posts are listed along with the thread they are in on your "starred pages". Once you click the starred post the thread is linked at the top.
Thank you Juli for posting how to use the browser search!
