    Can people please use the search function before starting a new thread.

    It can be a little clunky but it's not too bad and might help prevent the current wave of repeated subjects.
    It's often more interesting to have 'old' threads expanded and added to than to have gratuitous new threads that people have no answer for, as they've already said their piece elsewhere.

    Cheers
    Adam.

    I ought to add to this.
    You may have noticed there's the option to 'search tags' in many of the search areas.
    This is a direct link to the new tags function, once more threads have been tagged with appropriate markers it should become an effective way to follow particular themes, or personal tags, within the site.

    Cheers,
    Adam.

    As we've had a few threads on the same subject this last week or so that I have merged with existing threads can I just remind you all of the SEARCH function.
    Cheers.

    Lets consult the good Book then.... As per the King James Bible "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you"!

    My word Za, you are positively perky this morning!

    Hi again. Can you help? :sign_help:I have used the search facility, and can not find exactly what I am after. Is there a "Then and Now" thread, and if not, where would be best to place one?

    Cheers

    Rudi

    Have a look here

    There were also other similar threads, perhaps someone else can supply the links ?

    Rudi,

    I believe that it depends on the subject with the then and now theme.

    An example being if you visit a place with WW2 history and take a present day photo and post an historical photo taken at the same location.

    You could try searching under "Then and now" and perhaps hit on several threads.

    Good luck.

    During my time on the forum there have been lots of excellent posts on this theme.

    Regards
    Tom

    Just to bump this up.
    We've lots of new members recently.
    There's quite a bit of info tucked away in old threads, quite often worth a look around the forum for answers.

    Bumping this up.
    We're getting quite a few duplicate threads.
    Please use the search function first.
    Cheers.

    If the Site engine lets you down, as it often will.
    Use this:
    Search WW2T with Google

    Just put your query in the search box in front of the text already there, with a space after your query.
    Uses normal Google search terms, so ", *, +, - etc. will all work.

    I would never have thought of using an external search engine for searching within a forum.
    Works well thanks.

    And if you're on Firefox - there's a very handy add-on that makes a 'search this site' option appear with a right-click anywhere on a page:
