My apologies if this post appears as a duplicate but a previous post just seemed to disappear into the ether!

Does anyone else find the Geekzone search function frustrating, or am I being dumb?

How do you limit search to a specific forum or group of forums (fora)?
Since search uses Google, is it possible to have "search within results"?
Is there a help function for the search?
I know that using double quotes works in searching for exact phrase, what other options are available?

Here is how you search on Geekzone.

There isn't a forum specific search - this is because Google indexes the site quite quickly and saves us a huge load on the server.

Theres also the usual array of Google search things like + between words or phrases without spaces to indicate that both terms must appear together, and - to exclude some words. I usually find between quotation marks and +/- you can get whatever you need very quickly.
