How to use Invision Search:

Click on the Search link at the top of any page.

You will see a screen that looks like this:


Fill in a word or phrase you are looking for under search by keywords.

If you know which forum it's in, then choose the forum name (such as General Chat.) If you don't know, then make sure that "All Forums" is highlighted. Make sure the little "Child Forums" box is checked.

IMPORTANT! Make sure that you click on the drop down menu and choose "Any Date." (Thanks, Mewrio.)


You can refine the search to look only in topics or to search each post. You can also have the results displayed as either topics or posts.


I did a search for songs "not by Al."


And got these results:


From there it's a pretty easy thing to decide if what you want to know about is there.
