Is there a way to search for particular posts?

For instance, I remember reading a poem in a post last year sometime and I wanted to look at that post again, but it's extremely time-consuming to have to keep hitting the arrow to go to the next page, especially for something that was posted a year ago or more.

An easier way to view and retrieve older posts would be great!

Thanks

Hi, PoppasWifey! There is a search box on the forum page. Go to the "In-Laws Talk" forum and you will find the search box below the pink header and to the right of the "NEW TOPIC" box. Hope that helps!

hi thanks for the response.

To clarify, I was wondering if there is a way to search through the 'stories' on the main page to locate certain ones.

You can use Google Advanced Search and put "ihatemyinlaws.com" in the "Search within a site or domain" field.

so that google tool is great, but unfortunately when i clicked on some of the links that I thought might be it, it simply took me to the IHMI home page. Sigh!

Oh well. Such is life.

Thanks though.
