Compendium Search

Ok, so when I go to <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a> I see the usual, my library, all compendiums, etc. What I don't see is a way to search the compendiums. Because of this I end up just going to google, searching for what I'm looking for, then clicking the link to the roll20 compendium entry. There's got to be a better way. I feel like a derp. What am I missing? Does the page need fixing?

You need to click on the compendium you want to use (e.g. D&amp;D 5e). There will then be a search bar for searching that specific compendium. The page you linked is your general compendium page that shows links to all the compendiums that you have access to.
So there's no way to search my entire compendium at once? Going into each of 30 D&amp;D books, for example, to search for something when you're not sure which book it's in... is going to keep me using Google. I'll go add a suggestion/feature request then. Thank you.

The 5e compendium will search all 5e books simultaneously. There is no need to specify a particular book. Scott is talking about specifying which compendium you want to search (DnD5e, Pathfinder, Vampire, etc). There are over a dozen. Once you have clicked on that, your search goes across all the Compendium Sources (Books) in that Compendium (System).
