Hi all,

I would like to search a single forum for a search query. Is this possible in Adobe Forums?

I see only the "Search Forums" field on the top right of the page where I can do a search over all forums. This is not what I would like to do (imagine LiveCycle with a bunch of forums).

How can I search only one forum?

Thanks.

Paul,

To elaborate a bit:

The advanced Google Search should contain the following inserted in the top boxes (nothing else needed):

1) all these words/one or more of these words: the word(s) you are looking for
2) this exact wording or phrase: Up to discussions in *forum name*

2) is the more important part, limiting the search to threads belonging to that particular forum.

I believe most of us have given up on any forum search until further notice (about forum software udgrading).

Thanks for the responses!

Google search is great and will do!

Anyway in my eyes this forum with its search capabilities is very poor...

Paul,

Most of us feel the same way, and Adobe is working to improve things. Have not seen a "progress report" in a while, but there were efforts on-going.

Once, the MOD's for each forum/sub-forum could add a "Search This Forum" widget, but for certain reasons, those did not work all that well.

Good luck to us all,

Hunt

Isn't that "in a while" a slight understatement?

Well, yes. We would call it a "British understatment... "

Actually, there have been more recent statements of on-going work, but not THAT recent.
