Is there a way to search for keywords only within the comments/posts in the thread you have open in your browser? This was a search option at the top of every thread's page in the old site.
How To Search The Site

Near the top of the community, you will see a search bar.

Enter a search term or phrase and click enter on your keyboard or click the magnifying glass.

Search Specific Forum

If you want to search for a specific section, navigate to the forum section before entering your search term in the search bar, and then select this forum.

Search Specific Discussion Thread

If you want to search for a specific discussion thread, navigate to it before entering your search term in the search bar, and then select this thread.


Advanced Search

You can select Advanced Search instead of clicking the magnifying glass after entering the search phrase.

This will allow you to choose to search the titles of specific discussion threads, add the username of the community member who posted it, or even select a particular forum to search from.

Enter your search criteria and click Search at the bottom.

You can also access advanced search by clicking the Kebab (3 vertical dots) near the upper right-hand corner of the site and selecting Advanced Search.

I do realise you are very busy with this change and sorting problems, but could you please see this in The Green Room
(72) New - Things that need to changed in the new software? | Tech Support Forum (techguy.org)
I do think it would be better if TA`s were shown as such when they post on the forums. It is good for the users of the forums to see that the person replying is a Trusted Advisor.
No rush but if the software allows such a change it would I am sure be for the better.
In the meantime you can stick it as part of your signature

We had a "Read ALL" option at the top level so we did NOT have to click EACH level to select "Read ALL"
It would be nice if have that here?
How To Mark Forums Read

Navigate to the forum that you want to mark as read. At the top, you will see a button to Mark All Read.

If you want to mark all threads in the community as read, click on NEW near the upper right-hand corners of the site.

Click on Mark All Read.

You will then see a pop-up asking for confirmation that you want to mark all forums as read.

I am having other issues too: Users can't attach zip files.

You can use bookmarks to save often-used replies.

How To Save (Bookmark) Threads Or Posts

This is an excellent option when you want to save a thread to come back to later. At the bottom of the post, you will see Save. Click on it.

Once you click on Save, you can add any notes to remind yourself and then click to Save.

When you are ready to find the saved bookmarks later, from the navigation, near the upper right-hand corner, click on your avatar to open the drop-down menu and select Bookmarks.

Constantly receiving the enable push notifications on all pages I visit even after choosing the enable or even never. Very irritating.
Using iPad & Safari.

Are you using an ad blocker or blocking any cookies? Some browsers will interfere with the setting. Others have resolved this by turning off the ad blocker long enough to select never.

Yes but even after disabling it the problem remains.
I’ll check with Edge on iPad.

Edit: With Edge on iPad the push notification message doesn’t appear at all.
