Instructions: All the fields that appear above are option except for the forum field. The forum is needed in order to determine which messages to view. Normally all messages in a forum are displayed. However, entering values into the above fields will narrow down the messages that are displayed.

Entering a keyword will display only messages with that keyword. The keyword search can also be specified as an exact match search.

You can also specify a range of dates to view the posts. In other words, you can specify to view only the posts that were created between a certain range of days.

In addition to the above date range search, you can choose to narrow down the age of posts as a factor of days instead of an actual date range. For example, if you wanted to view only posts 2 days old and newer, then you would enter a "2" into the "earliest number of days to view messages" field.
