How does one search a specific board now?

it used to be that you could search specific boards; now I cannot find that option. What am I doing wrong?

    it's still the default setting if you enter a search term in the bar at the top of the page when you're on a particular board. try it - you'll see that all the results you get are for that board...

      Alternatively, starting from http://www.chow.com/search , select the "Chowhound" tab beneath the search box, then open up Advanced Search options with the button that appears to the right.

        i think the concern was that it's sometimes more convenient just to search the immediate board you're on without having to navigate to another search page & set parameters.

              doesn't seem to be a problem - it appeared immediately.
