If you search just the main forum, you will not find Advent competitions.

1) To Search JUST this year's advents.

Launch the Search process from within Advents, Click on "Threads" and make sure you select "Advent Competitions" in the "Category" box on the right hand side.

OR click on the link below and then replace the search term EXAMPLE with whatever you want to search for.

2) To Search the Main Comps Forum and include the Advents


Launch the Search process from the main forum, Click on "Threads" and make sure you select "Competitions time" in the "Category" box on the right hand side, and make sure the "Search Subcategories" box is ticked.

OR click on the link below and then replace the search term EXAMPLE with whatever you want to search for.

    Thanks One-Eye, i'd been struggling with this. 

    Do you know if there any way to search 2022 advents to see whether they're running again this year? Conscious they will be in game over with everything else.

    No easy way to do this on the forum and I had captured some on a spreadsheet from last year most of which I have posted now and also if you go to your profile and look under your 'My Threads' and find the pages from last year's advents anything you created or contributed to will be there, again I have done this and posted. Also just thought that a lot of advents were posted on the over £100 thread so was going to go through that from last year also so if anyone else could assist that would be great and I have posted the link below.

    @one@One-Eye your guidance for searching is good as no more duplicates from me after your message yesterday so thanks again

    I have these listed in my Advents spreadsheet from last year.
    Not sure if they've all been posted. If this is any help?
