sorry, me again

Hey, how does one know if someone has responded to a post or thread that they made? I don't know if I receive an email stating this, or if I just have to keep on refreshing the website/forum until I see someone has responded to my posts.

I tried to find my "Profile" to see if I could change anything there that might alter how I know if someone has responded to me, but I no longer can find how to change my profile, or if "profile" even contains choices of how I would be notified if someone answered a question of mine.

Okay, NEVER MIND. I just edited my settings and I can see that I will receive an email notification when someone responds to my posts.

Thanks again,

Greg

I even used the words "coolant adventures" in my search line because I'd just seen a thread title with those two words in it and still didn't find any matches. I'd love to just find where my topic (my ac/heater constantly blows and my controls do not change it at all. It also runs even after I turn my car off) is and see what all of the advice is that has already been given. Any help with this search feature would be great.



Thanks.

I’ve found that using google to search the forum tends to work best for me. Go to google and enter ‘site: bimmerfest.com your search terms here’

That will return results limited to the URL entered after ‘site:’ - seems to work much better than the site search.

This is a great way to search any site, I don't use any built-in search engines anymore.

Just make sure when you type "site:" you don't leave a space between the colon and the URL. Example: "site:bimmerfest.com coolant adventures" if you want to search for "coolant adventures".
