When I go to the groups page to look at different groups I can browse through pages organized differently, but there's no search. Is there a way to search preexisting groups without going through the whole list? Thanks.

    Yes. Go to the search page by clicking "Go" near the search box at the top of each Daily Kos page. You don't have to put anything in the search box until you get to the search page. Then, on the search page, select "Groups." You can change the drop down box to search for a word in the description.

    Here is the search page for groups:

    Haha, that must have seemed really obvious, sorry about that. Your response was like lightning, you rule!

    Not really that obvious, PPPA. I think most people assume clicking GO will just search the site. Why wouldn't they? Also, on the tag page, you can search tags, but on the group listing page, you can't search groups. Not consistent. Glad to have been able to help.
