    Hi,

    I was wondering if i did a search in google is there any way i could narrow down the search results to only find forums that contain my search query within the title or post on a forum? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Well, there's no Google search operator that I'm aware of to search for queries on forums only. There are forum search engines, though:
