I also want to know how to do a search for a specific topic on a forum. When I use the Search option it doesn't work that way.

Instead of the dpr search facility use g00gle search by typing in the following:

search text string 1033 site:forums.dpreview.com

This limits the search to dpr forums and most results will be from forum 1033, the Panasonic Compact Camera Talk forum in this example.

You can find the forum number for any forum by going there then looking in the address bar of your browser.

Click on the "gear" on the far right in g00gle search, select advanced search and you have more search options.

Happy searching! John

Thanks!  Sorry for the delay in replying.  I was just double checking to make sure I read all the replies.  I needed this one!  Thanks.

BTW, this seems like a complicated way to search for a simple topic in just one forum.  However, as long as it works!  Thanks.
