Aha. And duh.
Thank you Joanne.
I once wondered about tags and that little symbol but failed to adequately investigate. Very helpful. Thanks again.

posted documents: use the "attach file" as if you were attaching the document to an email in most email pgms. If you are looking for posted documents only, I have no idea if the search engine does this. I haven't looked that closely

Yeah, it's the latter I was thinking of, like a Borgesian archive. I will try to explore it. Thank you again.

Linda, the Advanced Search lets you search for posts by a particular person. Or you can go to a person's profile and click on the link to view all their recent posts.

You can attach documents to every post but there's no specific way of searching for attachments only. Is this something we should implement?

Thanks Ben, the d-word thinks of everything, I now know how to search.

I do believe I'm not the first who has wondered about a document archive...

If someone wants to volunteer and compile one, we could have a dedicated topic that would just show important documents of common interest. But it'll be a lot of work. Also, some people choose not to attach a document but to copy-paste its text into the hidden section of a post. A bit more difficult to spot.

One suggestion is to just create a "FILES" section with some "Folders" for categories of information. This is the way Yahoo Groups works. Then let the members put stuff they like in the folders and others can look for cool, useable stuff that they can use. Identify who posted it and when. Any member can create folders or subfolders. Any member can post a file. A member can delete any files they posted. Hosts can delete anything. No editing of files; if you want to change a file, delete and replace.

Well, we'd need another fundraiser for that sort of thing.

For the time being, please use our Tags feature to mark useful posts (or attachments).

Perhaps we can refine the way we try to use the Tags feature.

Could we agree perhaps on some standard tags for the most commonly used or requested kinds of documents?

And perhaps suggest a more standard way of tagging the posts that contain these documents? For example, I often see questions about CONTRACTS (and I believe there are a number of specific kinds of contracts), but don't know if all sample contracts get tagged as such or if they are tagged at all.
