Have not found a way to search forum topics / posts -- is there a way to do this at present, or could this be added? It would certainly be nice, and might cut down on redundant topic threads.

Forgive me if this seems argumentative...

If we had a search function, we wouldn't need to make a list to avoid duplicate topics.

I just spent too much time looking for the search function to see if another suggestion was already here before I posted a new topic. (boat dock prices)

If duplicate topics are discouraged, especially in the suggestion forum, there should be an easy & consistent way to "+1" a suggestion.

There should also be a "sticky" link to the list at the top of this forum.

Be Well

Camp Kohler, if this is being added to your list as yet another topic on an existing subject, and you're providing the link to the entire list, maybe what you want to do is post the existing topics to save the members the need to look the topics up.

I say that constructively because it doesn't appear that people are using the list (if they were, you wouldn't see so many duplicate topics).

You mean redundant topic threads like asking for a search function?
