Is there a way to search the site for all posts made by a specific member? I am new to the site and trying to figure out the interface.

Yes indeed. Click Search on the toolbar, and in the resulting screen, under Search by User Name, type the user name of the person whose posts you want to find. Fron the drop-down under the search box, select either Find Posts by User or Find Threads Started by User, and then click Search Now.

I just tried to search using your suggestion. The search result gave me many other links in addition to my specified search. For example I typed in "Benji" and was given many other posts besides Benji. Is there a way to narrow down the search results to just those posts submitted by Benji?
