How are you searching posters? I tried searching for your string and didn't get any results.

I assume there is a generic way to search the results

I'm trying to figure out how you did it so I can try to reproduce it. Search is a little different than searching headers.

Typically you search for something then after that's done you can type a new string into the search box (as long as you don't hit enter, which triggers a new search) which will let you further filter down the list.

Let me start over, and lets assume fictional searches and names

In subject search mode I search for Beatles

I get a lot of hits

I sort those by poster and see that Record Guy has a lot of them

I go to poster search mode and type in Record Guy and get a lot of hits

some are Beatles , some are rolling stones, some are Wayne Newton

I just want to download his Beatles headers, so I want to sub-search his list like I could if this was a subject list, but I dont see a box the I can enter my search criteria.
