    How do i search a specific WordPress forum for a specific topic? There seems to be a search bar at the top of each forum but it looks DOA, it does not do anything if I type in a search term. While I’m here, the questions that I want to research are: what are the adantages of moving my WP blogs to proprietary WP blogs? Can my blogs, in WordPress form, be hosted within one of my own websites? How does that work and is it worth the effort? I’m also interested in using WordPress as an app to run some of my current websites that are currently being run with either iWeb or Freeway. I’m a Mac user. One of my websites is also a “store” is there a good WP app for something like that? Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is quickdrawartist.wordpress.com.

    Thanks Tess. I’ll ck the links you suggested first. I do have another question for now, though. The ONLY way that I was able to find THIS page was by clicking on the link from the email I got from WP telling me that someone had responded. When I tried to get here from WP Forums, I got as far as https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/questions, which is where I posted it, and could not find THIS page from there. How come?

    On top, click on “Welcome, (your name)”. It will take you to the list of your posts. Does that help? :-)
