Can I search topics?

I haven’t been able to figure out how to search for a topic. I have some newbie questions and I don’t want to waste time and space asking questions that have long been answered.

Yes, there’s a Search icon (magnifying glass) at the top right of the page.
The options can be opened after you click it.

Oh blimy, I don’t know how I missed that – I was looking specifically for a magnifying glass icon. Thanks!
