    Love you guys. You have saved my patookis many times. Usually I don't even have to post as the questions are answered in the existing posts.

    Today I thought I would check out the polls but can't find them.

    I also checked out my profile and would like to add my name and a photo of my most handsome self but can find no way to do that.

    Not big problems but thought you might like to know that this idiot is having troubles navigating the site.

    Again, thanks.

    Glenn

    To add your photo, go to your User Panel (link @ top right)

    Then click the PhotoUploadUtility link, or just click here
    http://forums.techguy.org/upload.php

    Select your photo, enter a description, submit and voila!

    Go to search and type in member name.....either HexStar or Herge and you'll find plenty of polls! :D Or you can find a bunch in random and civilized debate forums! :D Take care. angel

    Or just go to search, type "Poll" in the "search by Keyword" box, and select "Search titles only" in the search options. (Of course MOST of the results will match Angel's method ;) )

    Search will only get a result of the user put the word "Poll" in their post... The "Poll" that you're expecting to see is actually added by the system -- it's not part of the title, just a prefix. As far as I know, there isn't any easy way to seperate polls from other posts in a search.

    Mike - thanks for the explanation. :)

    Buck - 'fraid I agree with you on that :( - Luckily it's not representative of the site as a whole.
