    vista inurl:forums
    vista inurl:board
    vista inurl:boards
    And u can also include keyword intitle: for even more closer results.

    Code:
    intitle:vista inurl:forum
    intitle:vista inurl:forums
    intitle:vista inurl:board
    intitle:vista inurl:boards

    Imagine of u want to collect the information about a particular thing!
    The BEST way is to search for the thing in forums and thats what the author of this post wants!

    Me too always use this method to search for a particular thing!

    PS: He doesnt want to search in this forum but in other forums.

    You can search only forums..there are clearer and better ways and specialised services to find post in forums only that too in specific catg.

    You may find this site usefull.

    Code:
    http://www.boardtracker.com
    I use it often to find info...sometimes searching forums is better than searching in google.
