Often times I want to search in a certain forum only.....For instance, If I wanted to search "Dodge" in a Show Off or Extreme Make Over, then I do an "Advanced Search". Although Advanced Search has some great tools to search for individuals etc. There is an easier way Boys and Girls to do a quick search!

First, click "Forums"

This will bring you to the many sub forums if you will filled with fun and adventure.....Okay..:dunno. It's filled with great information I hope to shout! This is just the icing on the cake:

In this case, I'm going to search in the "Show Off's" Forum: CLICK!

I'm going to search for "Dodge" as I did that when I polished out a Dodge Pickup, up here in No. California, a Dodge pickup is a Rural Cadillac! And must be diesel to haul all those critters around. I was searching for little help.....Oh yeah, press go when YOU entered what your looking for.....

This is great Arron, maybe add one more picture and show the option via the drop down list to choose,

Search Thread
Search Title


I use the Search Title option more than the Search Thread option if I can remember just one word with at least 3 letters in the title.

This helps to refine your search down quite a bit.
