Is there a sticky somewhere that offers specific/general help, tips and advice on how to search the CMSMS forum? This seems like it would be a good idea.

Yes - for example, can you use a wildcard? Can you use Google to search this forum? (I know that's available but mention it because I always forget how to use it and it would be nice if it was in one spot)

Thanks, at least I was able to garner a little information from that I was not aware of. I know this task seems simple but I find myself spending more time searching than reading sometimes.

The Search in the top orange bar is actually powered by google, the Search link in the top gray bar is the default SMF search, which does let you choose boards etc...
Check ver. CMSMS, PHP, server OS, in System Information page.
