Is there a way to search this database for topics so I don't create one that already exists?

I am looking for a way to search this database so I don’t create a new topic for a question that has been answered dozens or hundreds of times. Of course this question may have been asked thousands of times already :slight_smile:

https://www.google.com/search?q=how%20to%20search%20in%20discourse

… and when the internal search function of the new forum doesn’t yield desired results, I sometimes add site:forums.steinberg.net to a regular Google search query.

For example:


p.s. The transition to the new forums confused the Google index date stamps, so ignore those.

In addition to the search functions, When you start to create a new topic, if you look on the right hand side discourse will display a “This is similar to” box.

Within that area there will be similar topics based on your title, which you can click on.

It’s quite a nice reminder before posting.
