Show a Subset of Entries (Filtering)
In a discussion forum, you can search for entries that match certain criteria, and then have the forum display only those entries. This is called filtering.
To filter the forum:
The Configure Filters page appears.
The "Specify the search command..." page appears.
For example, if you want to see only those entries created by a specific author, enter the author's name in the Author(s) text box in the Search Qualifiers row.
If you choose, you can specify several criteria. For example, you can specify a simple search string, an author, and a keyword.
Forum redisplays the forum. The name of the new filter appears in the User Filters row, and it is activated (you can turn it off by clicking).
Your filters are personal; no other user sees them. Also, when you filter the entries in a discussion and then log out, Forum remembers the use of the filter and applies it when you log back in.
To delete a filter, click on thelink, select the filter, and click .
