PC forum search radio buttons

When trying to search this site to see if a subject had been raised before, with one or two searches I got the following message:

"Search results
There are no messages that match your search criteria. Please try some new keywords

You may want to try expanding your search to look in the message body as well, please select the appropriate radio button above"

My powers of observation are not brilliant, but I could not see any relevant radio buttons. Please could someone tell me where I am going wrong, and how to find said buttons?

I'm not all that sure what they mean by Radio buttons either. However - the search box on the left works better with just one word queries. e.g.
inputting "VHS TO DVD" brings up just 23 threads, but inputting just the one word "VHS" brings up 127 threads.

I think it's a hang over from previous generations of the search engine, that were rather more configurable than the current version.

Thank you all.

I suspect Belatucadrus is correct. This reduced functionality is a shame as I would have liked to have searched the body of the messages to make sure I didn't miss anything. I confess I wasn't aware that only the titles were searched, though I should have guessed it from recent correspondence in this forum.

SEASHANTY, I was trying to use more than one word, and got nothing - how did you guess?

SANTOS7 - two helps in one day, very kind of you.

Thanks again,
emperor
