Searching the control panel

Much of the content and pages within the XenForo control panel can be found using the control panel search system. If you are unsure where to find something, this is the first place to check.

The search system can be accessed by clicking the magnifying glass icon in the upper right and typing what you're looking for. Any matches will be displayed immediately.
