Look before you leap

Yesterday, working on my first yola based website, I came up with a problem.
I wanted to alter the width of my text boxes within two columns, and right away thought 'I will ask in the forum'.
Being a newbie in yola (less than a week) its a bit daunting to post a topic because you think that the more seasoned users will laugh at you if the answer is pretty obvious.

So, I had noticed at the top of the topics page a 'Search topics' box so I typed in there 'how can I resize text boxes' and to my amazement there appeared 1137 topics related to my question. Quickly looking through them I found the answer I needed, and I had to laugh at myself for not seeing the 'properties' panel for the text widget.

Now I urge all community members to at least LOOK for your problem in the 'search topics' box before LEAPing onto the forum to get someone else to do the work for you. It may give the 'employees' and 'champs' etc a well earned rest, and to be honest it gave me something to do instead of waiting for a reply.

Thanks Woolyback for sharing this idea. This forum is definitely a great resource for people to draw from. Making use of the search box is an excellent one. Most likely a question a forum user has, have already been asked. =) We are always willing though to answer questions, if even they have been asked before.

Since you have made use of this search box, I now have time to tell a joke as John Mc says! =)

Here's my little joke (it's my favorite one that my daughter shares with me).

What did the porcupine say to the cactus?
