It seems the search function for the forums forces use of the top search box like on the homepage. Even searching the term "evac" would not find some threads. Had to use a web search engine for some help.

Hmmmmm, I just tried searching "fs wm" (someone's always selling a Western Mountaineering bag), and a list came up just like it always does...

This is what I see. It must be something on my end. I'm on a mac using safari.

Of course you can always use google or yahoo or whatever, and for example enter

"fs wm site:backpackinglight.com"

BPL search is powered by Google. What are you looking for John?

I'm on a PC with good ol' IE. Sometimes, on some websites, I've had compatibility problems; in those cases, I try a different browser (Chrome, usually) and that's often enough to clear things up.

If you have another browser, try it and see if that clears up the problem.
