    Yours shows the same as my screen, Kevin. The search is there, just not labelled as such. Click on the magnifying glass icon to open search.

    The only functional difference I see is that you are running an ad blocker and I am not.

    I tried the 4 browsers I usually test with and all look fine.

    That's weird! Your magnifying glass is on the wrong line. It should be on the same line as the "search term" box. And "Advanced Search" should be where your magnifying glass is. I can't imagine what would cause that except an issue with your browser.
    What browser & OS are you running?

    Hi Kevin,

    I suspect that it's something to do with the way your Avast SafeZone browser (which is a modified version of Chrome) is handling the page. You appear to be running Win 10, so have you tried using the built in Edge browser instead to see if that looks any different?

    Regards,

    Graham

    It seems to come and go with message board updates. I am using google chrome and Windows 10. One thing I've noticed that I don't have an explanation for is that sometimes my space bar doesn't work on a reply unless I go advanced on my reply. Not every time but a few times a day.

    Seems the Advanced Search indicator is back on. Does it show for you, Kevin?

    Strange. The magnifying glass icon has moved up to beside the rectangle, with "Advanced Search" under it on my screen. I have not purposely changed anything on my computer.
    Ah, I see what it is. it seems to depend on the SIZE of display you are selecting. Go smaller and the search indicator leaves. Go larger and it returns.

    On my laptop I use two fingers on the pad that moves the cursor, either moving them towards each other or away from each other. Been a long time since I've used a mouse, can't help there right now.
