Generally it is a good idea to search a discussion forum before posting a new question. Since we have so many years of archived discussion at hand, there is a good chance you will find what you want already discussed.

You may find an ongoing discussion that is a good place to post a Reply to carry on with the topic rather than start a new one on the same subject.

You have the choice to search individual forums, or you can search the entire set of all forums. The latter will take longer, and may find topics that are not accessible to you... ie an answer in the student weather forum, but you are not registered in that course.

The search button is a tiny link in the top right of most pages. There is a more prominent link in some of the Forums

Remember too that you can search the entire Starpath website, which might be an even more efficient way to find what you need. This is done from a link on the home page, or from here Search Starpath Website.

See here a video on searching discussion forums.
