It is now very difficult to find the wealth of useful info that is in the forum using a google search such as: help me

The forum no longer shows up in google searches, which means we cannot specifically use google to search your forum. It appears it has been blocked by your robots.txt file. In a previous life the forum was definitely in google!

The forum software search is really not very good at all, this is normal for all forums unless you install something like elasticsearch.
