Hi cragmaid, Thanks for your questions. The reasons for adding sub-forums on more specific topic areas are explained here. You could post in any of those sections - whichever you felt most comfortable in. For example: just as before the updates, a younger person with dementia might post in 'I have dementia' or 'Younger people with dementia' or 'Support for people with dementia and their carers'. There are more options to choose from now, but as explained above, having one very large area in which members posted about a myriad of different topics, wasn't practical for a number of reasons. As for searching, if you want to search across all forums, you can either click on 'Most recent posts' to view the latest posts, or you can use the Search facility to search for discussions on a particular topic. The answer to this question is here. I hope this helps, but do come back to me if any of the above isn't clear.
