    I've searched for an answer and found none so my question is, what do all the new icons mean next to the thread headings. There are a revolving green arrow, A red exclamation mark, A light bulb, A blue downward pointing arrow, etc. Is there a key somewhere that tells you?

    They basically mean nothing! When you create a thread you could always choose an icon to represent it, but the meaning of it is completely arbitrary. The icons have changed with the new theme, so you probably notice them more now, but they really don't mean a thing! Its entirely up to the author of the post if they want an icon and what they think it means to the thread!

    Also, there are new icons next to the thread topics...

    The legend is included in the regular forum pages at the bottom.

    this site has gone totally iconotastic!!!!

    I like how its gone, it was a big change to make in one swoop but it seems to work for me.

    In addition to using the Thread Tools there is an "Unsubscribe" link in all of the email notices that are generated...near the bottom of the email.

    Thanks for being part of the forum!

    Is there a way to search for text within a specific thread? I was reading a thread that was 47 pages long the other day, and today went back to find a specific post in that thread but could not find a way to search just that thread for the text I wanted. The overall search didn't find the post I wanted for some reason, so I had to go through the thread page by page and search for the text string on each page. Thanks

    hi, i think you're referring to a 'post'. in the ipf app, there's an option for 'show results as' in search where you can choose 'posts' instead of 'threads'. the text you indicated is then shown in red...
