    Old threads

    May I know how to search the old threads from others with the topics I want to ask?

    Thanks.

    Re: Old threads

    Write the topic in Google Custom Search near the top of the page and click Search.

    You'll see a page with faint print. Press ctrl f5 and you should see what you are looking for. You may have to do this several times.

    Try it out with nouns/verbs.

    Hi Rover,

    I followed your instructions and found the faint print. But I couldn't find the space to put in the topic!

    Thanks.

    What browser are you using, Yu and tzfujimino?
    I am using Chrome and Edge, both of which can show the old threads there.
