    go advanced and use clear tertms. Single word searches yield infinite results, and limit the topical search to thread titles instead of text and title..
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    I use google search like this. Put exact phrases in quotes. ( I locate my old postings by adding "rm -rf" to the search.)

    for instance:
    site:bikeforums.net "fsa omega" bar "rm -rf"

    But I never thought about restricting it to one forum. This does work!

    This will probably pick up references to your username, not just your posts. But you can see context of each posting.
