Maybe I've just overlooked it, but is there a search engine for the forums? I can't seem to find any, which is kinda holding me back from making new topics. I also can't quite find any other controls for the forum, like the signature (Yeah, I know I've already got one set, but… I can't even remember how I did that!) Thanks for your help!

There's not a search engine, it's on the wish list. most people use google's advanced search, you can limit it to a subdomain (http://www.drunkduck.com/community) but still, a search engine would be quite helpful.

Under your own posts there's a link that says ‘edit signature’ :) It's easy to miss.

The only way the search the DD forums at the moment is to use the Advanced Search feature of Google (or any other search engine) and specify that you ONLY want to receive search results from THIS forum.

In fact all you need to do is just go to the normal Google search page and enter your search query like this:

Ozoneocean rules site:http://www.drunkduck.com/community/

That would return this result.

Or, if you need a more exact query you could try an exact phrase search:

“Ozoneocean rules” site:http://www.drunkduck.com/community/
