Hi Dick:

For Sale - members can continue to post on the forum as usual. Because the For Sale page is a web page its created through the Content Management System i.e. there isn't a member's ability to post direct to the For Sale. Simon is looking at arrangements (aka volunteer) for someone to do this function.

Search Function : on the public side -> 'hamburger' menu -> Cruising Info -> Search OCC Website (actually an embedded Bing search which we've submitted XML site maps for)
