    Let's say I want to search only the classifieds for an item, how do I do that?

    You should see "Search Forum" in the upper right.

    yes. click "Advanced Search" above. Select the "Search Single content" tab. It should be pretty self explanatory from there,

    got it. there are so many places to click on every page of this forum, I didn't see those options even though I've looked plenty of times. too many options.
    thanks

    goto whichever of the sections you want to search
    for sale for example
    just above and to the right of the listings there is a "search forum"
    click on it, then advanced search and put in quotes the thing you are searching for
    for example "toyo" and you can do the pull down and do in thread or title
    and get results like this for title

    if you know the seller, put their user name in the user name box ...
