    To search for posts on the BBS, start by clicking in the Search box near the upper right corner of the page:
    This will bring up the XenForo search dialog:
    • Enter your search term, if any, in the Search... box.

    • Check the Search titles only box if you only want to search thread titles and not text of individual posts.

    • If you wish to search for posts by the author(s) of the post(s), enter the username(s) in the Posted by Member box. Note that if you leave the Search... box blank, it will look for ALL posts by the entered username(s).

    • To search for only newer posts, enter a cutoff date in the Newer than field.

    • The Search this thread only checkbox is only shown if viewing a thread when you went into the search dialog. Check the box to limit your search to posts within the currently-viewed thread.

    • The Search this forum only checkbox is shown if viewing a thread or a forum list when you went into the search dialog. Check the box to limit your search to posts within the currently-viewed forum.

    • By default, the search returns a list of matching posts. If you wish to return threads instead, click the Display results as threads box.

    • The down-arrow in the lower right corner pops up a menu with several other options:
      • Recent Posts
      • Your Threads
      • Your Posts
      • Your Profile Posts

    • The More... button brings up another screen where you can refine your search further.
