i've tried to find previous symmetry challenges both on my phone using the find in page option ..
and on my computer searching in the browser ..
on both it only brings up the Asymmetry challenge ..
this happens quite a lot when i cant find a previous challenge by searching for it here ..
in filter i've unticked member and speed challenges ..
looking forward to getting this sorted ..
thankyou in advance .. <3

Go to the page you've linked and press cntrl-F and enter "symmetry". Here's the most recent one:

Symmetry VIII

Once I'm at that page, I sort the challenges into alphabetic order (before searching) so that they appear together on the list. That way I only have to search once.

Sorting alphabetical can be a great way to get like challenges together, but be careful. If you want all related challenges, and some of them don't start with the key word, you will miss some.

I've noticed that, but it's still useful most of the time.

Well, that's just the first one that has "symmetry" in it. There are up- and -down arrows in the search box: cycle down until you hit the first symmetry on the list.

sorry Robert .. I just edited my last post to make it Asymmetry III ..

I'm on my phone at the moment and wondering how to find any of the Symmetry challenges ..

I've tried putting II .. or III after Symmetry and i still get Asymmetry III coming up .. that happens both on my phone and when I search on my computer ..
similar has happened when I've searched for other challenges as well ..

roz It will take you to the first result, but if you keep clicking on the down arrow you'll eventually find what you're looking for.

put a space in front of symmetry when you search

I usually just Google for it :) Always wondered why there wasn’t a search box to go with the filter option. CTRL+F across multiple pages is not the best user experience.

Any appetite to augment the screen and query string?

$variable = sql_clean_escape ($variable); // remove escape variables
$query = “select * from dpc.challenge where challenge_title like ‘%{$variable}%’”;

No need to search across multiple pages. Just use the "Show All Challenges At Once" box as roz did. And sorting into alphabetic order makes it a bit easier, though you'll still need to check for other challenges that include your key word.
