At the top of the Forum Home page, you see a blue stripe. To the left, you see the word "Search", next to the help link. Click on that and you can search the entire forum using one or two words on a given topic. Click on each board - Beginners Block, Personal Encounters, etc. When you are on the main page for the board (where you see all the topics for that board), look to the bottom right. You will see a place to search that board only. You can do an advanced search with either one. I'm not sure how easy it would be to have an archive section, as each board has a great many pages of topics. I think it would probably be more difficult to have a specific archive for the entire board.
