    I've looked but can't locate any basic information...like how to search forums? How to "Like" posts? I'm at a loss, help?

    Mostly I randomly click and hope.

    However for the two specifics you mentioned:

    The search box is top right and has some options for forum searching. Has the word search in it.

    The like button is at the bottom of each post, right hand side.looks like a thumbs up hand.

    I am unaware of instructions, you might be able to search about xenforo for more info.

    Hm...I don't see either a search box or the word "search" and also don't see a thumbs up symbol on the bottom of any posts. I tried various browsers, but no go. Perhaps it's newbie thing? I see there are parts of the forums I can't post in at this time. Or maybe this is a Windows 10 thing...just the many others I've discovered since upgrading from Win 7 last week. :(

    Here's the Search bar

    And the like buttons

    PS: You don't see the like buttons on your own posts, that would be cheating :)

    LOL thanks for the pics, but I still don't have either the search bar or the like icon. Perhaps I've been bad and have been banned...huh, that would be an all time record, even for me! :confused:

    Here's my view (not sure if this link will work or not from Google Cloud):

    Ah, there's the answer! Time to shut down for the night, but I'll get on that tomorrow. Thanks so much for solving the mystery of the missing items!

    Hi! Thanks for asking :)

    I've stumbled around a bit, but have been setting up my new computer for most of the last three days (and apparently killing my old PC during upgrades :() So between trying to get Windows 10 (Fall Creation edition) to play nice with my Steam games :confused:, trying to diagnose what exactly I did wrong with my old PC o_O (and finding out that my backup apparently didn't BACK UP my Steam game files (I now have NO BL2 profiles saved :eek:)), etc...I've been a grumpy recluse pretty much all weekend.

    But the new computer looks pretty cool! https://support.hp.com/ca-en/document/c05814187 (OMEN by HP 880-109 Desktop PC Product Specifications | HP® Customer Support) GPU and additional RAM to be added as sales come along. Meanwhile I have a new SSD (bought for my old computer) to install, though with the way things have been going this weekend, I may just pay someone else to do that ;)

    If you get stuck, drop by the lounge and seek guidance or jump on discord and look one of us up.

    How does one look up people on Discord? I can't seem to get anywhere with that app (only lets me see people who have sent me invites).

    Go check out our communication forum. Post up there for a discord invite and you then get access to server
