    She is in Nor Cal, and her name is Laurie K or something like that. I have typed it every way I could, upper case, lower case, and if I don't get it right, I get zero results. Is there any way to make username search include, "closest match"? Thanks, not griping. Need to tell her some good news!

    From the FAQ's:
    One of the more powerful features of the search is how to use wildcards. These wildcards make search VERY powerful on a forum, especially one with as many posts as we have here.

    "Using an asterisk at the end of your search term will find many variations of the term you seek.

    Example: If you enter the Search: child* you'll be returned with information on children, child, childs, etc.​
