    How to search this forum?

    /me bands head against the desk in front of him.

    I politely suggest reading the FAQ first. That question is in there. Third on down from the top. :)

    Hasn’t helped. :(

    Anyone else like my cut and paste that I’m using now? :)

    Anyway, any more suggestions for FAQs?

    Hey Dr. Mike

    Could the wordpress.com FAQ address the questions of putting audio (I don’t know which if any formats are supported by WP.com) & video (YouTube & Google Video) links into blog posts?

    Me also bangs head on wall. It ain’t that easy to find the search form.

    Indeed, the only way seems to be to bookmark it from the thrird questions down in the FAQ.

    IMHO should not NEED to be in FAQ: should be possible to find …

    BTW what is a ‘backtick’ for code: apparently is not the standard backslash.

    backtick… first key in the upper left corner of your keyboard under the “esc”” key.

    My sidebar went to the bottom. I don’t think I have any images or long links there. Any ideas?

    HTML errors. most often there are some <TAGS> not closed somewhere in your posts.

    details in the following article on my blog.

    Is it possible to easily transfer the posts from {MSN Spaces|Blogsome.com|another WordPress.com} blog to my WordPress.com blog?

    Yes, not that easy, but quite possible with RSS2MT

    Tag vs. Categories and the ever so coveted tag cloud.

    Uh, the forum search box is at the top of the page, next to the large SEARCH THIS FORUM button. If you can’t find it there, it’s unlikely you will be able to find it in the FAQ.

    It was there before. Some of us old geezers remember.

    Actually, if they’re finding it now that should mean they already know HOW to search the forums…leading me to think I shouldn’t waste my time here, nor should you.
