How To Search Forums?

by tibbieluvr / July 18, 2013 11:50 AM PDT

I want to search the laptop forum, and for the life of me, I can't find a way to search for a topic. I know it has to be there, I'm just not seeing it. Please help?

I've griped to CNET about this myself. They took away a lot of the functionality of the MacFixIt fourm when the gobbled it up. Their reply to me was "we'll work on it sometime in the future". So, take you pick - does that mean this week, this month, this year, this decade, this century - what?????

What it means is that there are TONS of other Mac forums where you can do a simple search, so I went to some of those and got my answer. Wink Thanks, all.

you will see the "Search CNET" box.

Unfortunately, this searches everywhere on CNET and not just the forums.

Once you start the search, there are some filters that can be applied.
