All Boards 2) This Board (the board you are on), and 3)

use "Advanced Search," place location name ("Yolo") in the
"Find Message Containing" field, go down to the field, "With
Message Type." In this drop-down box, choose type of entry

For the best search results, use only lower case letters
in your search words.
