As the subject says, is there anyway I'm not seeing on performing a search within a single post? Some posts are 40-50+pages in DIY threads and when performing debugging it can be helpful to find others with a similar component problems.

A "post" is a single entry by one person. I'm pretty sure there are no posts 50 pages long.

A "thread", on the other hand, is a topic within a forum containing individual posts, and these can go on for many pages.

I'm guessing what you mean to ask is whether it's possible to search within a specific thread. As far as I know, phpBB (this forum software), doesn't do this.

If you actually want to search within a single, long post or on a particular page of a thread, use your browser's search/find function.

I think it'd be a handy feature ... didn't see any options for it though in the admin control pages .. so it would need a code modification ... will keep it in mind, thanks for asking!

One tip is to use Google with domain set to electro-music.com - it can point you to the correct page. It's helped me on occasion.

Like I've done here:

https://encrypted.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=%22broken+EHX+Deluxe+Memory+Man%22+site%3Aelectro-music.com&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=

Check the link to the "New Gear" thread.

My input into google here was:

Quote:
"broken EHX Deluxe Memory Man" site:electro-music.com

Using the forum's search panel. Limit the forum you're searching by using the Search In Forum field. Then set the Display results as field to Posts. The default is topics. This will narrow things down a bit.
