Re: How to search through threads

When you go to the main page of a subforum, there should be a "Search this forum" link on the top right-hand side of the page, just before the list of threads.

Likewise, when you click on a thread, there is a "Search this thread" button at the top of the thread.

However, the search engine here is sub-par, so you may have better luck with Google, appending to your search...

site:addforums.com

This restricts the search to the ADDF domain, but I don't think it can be used to restrict the search to particular threads/subforums. (I just tried it, and failed.)

If you're trying to track down your own posts, you can click on "User CP" in the menu bar, and a list of threads in which you've posted (or to which you've subscribed) will be displayed in reverse chronological order of last update. If you don't see the thread you want there, click "See all subscribed threads" to display those that haven't been updated quite as recently.
