    Search a specific forum

    i may be missing something but I think i used to be able to search for an item in a specific forum, such as Databases or Word. Now it seems like I have to look in all forums and there doesn't seem to be a way to sort the results. Is there a way to do this? Thank you.

    In the Advanced Search, there are two tabs. The default (right) tab (Search Multiple Content Types) doesn't list the individual forums, but the left tab (Search Single Content Type) does.

    Thanks jscher,

    I looked at the tab but since I normally want to put in more than one search term, I didn't think that was what I wanted. It was! I appreciate the help.

    If you want to Search within the forum you are currently in, there is a Search option at the top of the list of threads.
