Dumb Question - How to Search JUST the For Sale Ads?

Discussion in 'Forum Usage Help' started by EdO., Feb 5, 2016.

  1. Another dumb newbie question. A little slow on the uptake here. I'm trying to search just the For Sale ads but can't seem to figure out how to do it without getting 80 pages of everything. Input appreciated.

    Click on Forums, go to where it says Classifieds, and from there you can pick what category (basses, amps, etc) you want to look at For Sale ads for.
  3. Appreciate the feedback. I want to search for a specific name, type etc. Like "thunderbird" or "ampeg" etc, not just basses for sale i.e. Trying to narrow down the search so I don't have to filter through 80 pages of basses for sale looking just for a specific type of bass.
  4. When you are in the "for sale" section of say amps.. use the search function.. put in there "Ampeg" and specify thread titles only.. and you will just get Ampeg sales ..
  5. Oh and there are no "Dumb" questions on TB.. but sometimes there are some "dumb" answers..
  6. Knew I was missing something simple. That was the fix 99Z3, appreciate it, thank you!

    Actually you can go to the 'basses for sale' forum and when you do your search, click the 'search this forum only' box.

    You can even narrow it down to your state, a nearby state, etc.

    Also, filter in only For Sale/Trade items. I know that almost everytime is search for anything I get 20-30 "SOLD" ads
