I am having one heck of a time trying to access one of my old posts.
I would like to send it to a fellow Roadfooder because it describes a now defunct restaurant.
Will someone please help?

Hey Bill, do you know in what forum you posted it?  Around what year/month?  Any keywords to help in the search?

go to google and enter the following
 
"site:roadfood.com" with no spacing between anything, and after that a space and whatever you are looking for. For example...
 
"site:roadfood.com hot dog Indiana" which gets you this:
http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=site:roadfood.com+hot+dog+Indiana
 
The search function since upgrade does not access older content.
 
Good luck!

Thank you, billyboy.
I didn't have much of a clue about any of that. What I thought I knew came up blank.
 
Thank you, Tony Bad --
The googel search worked!-- BINGO!!
I just put in the name of the restaurant & Roadfood and it came right up. Your strategy worked.
It's too bad that a simple click on a name no longer brings up old posts.

Glad you found what you were searching for. The break or gap in the search function was due to the switch to a new forum software. I agree it would have been nice to have the search get everything, but this works pretty well as a go around.
 
Happy New Year Bill!
