The only way I've found is to go into "archive" and do a find on this page search. Pain in the butt.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!

I don't know if they changed something or not but I did something different today. If you (from the Forum page) click on a section like "General" and enter it, then scroll down to the bottom of the page you will see "Thread Display Options". Change this to "show threads from the " and pick "beginning". Now I can see and search older threads I think.
Edit: Can see them but can't search them.

In order to get the search to function for older posts we will have to re-index all the old posts. We did re-index about 13,000 of the latest posts after the forum was upgraded and that process took about 3 hours.. There are 127,000 posts on the forum and to re-index them all we would have to take the forum down for about 2 days to get them all or we can batch them at night and take the board down from 8 or 9pm and then restart it the next morning for about a week.
