Yes you can, if you are a very new member ,I think it is like 48 hours....Sue will have a better answer for that question...now as for the search I have had excellent luck using the goggle advanced feature...or any advanced search really,it seems whatever the GW search engine doesnt give me, the advanced search will,you just put in the exact name or phrase you are looking for,than put gardenweb.com in for the domain,click search and you should come up with something. Good luck! :)

I did a search for a member who contacted me last week and they did not show up as a member. I went back to the offer I had made and there was their post and when I clicked on their 'page' it showed up...they were not a new member either. GW burped??

This member isn't a new member either,signed up several months ago.

RE: Searching for a member question

If you remember what forum the member posted on, you could try a search in that forum instead of just a member search.

I have found that there are times that the member search does not work, but if you try posting the member name in a couple of different forums, the name will pop up for you.
