How can I exclude AppMon when searching forum?

Although I select the "Dynatrace Open Q&A" forum before searching for content, the web site always forgets this selection and returns posts related to AppMon. Do others experience this problem as well? Is there a way to exclude AppMon and see posts only related to Dynatrace?

See my answer here.
Unfortunately, the search bar does not take the currently selected forum into account, so you need to filter the search results and have to do a two-step search.

Two-step search flow:

Initial search using the Search bar -

Scroll down to 'Refine Your Search' (below Community/Employee of the month) -

Use the 'Forum' dropdown to select the desired forum -

Click 'Submit'

This will filter the results to a single forum -

Thanks you very much for clarifying how to work within the screen's current limitations. It helps allot. I really do hope that Dynatrace improves this soon - I suspect that allot of people have difficulty with this interface and I can't imagine that it would be that hard to make it much more intuitive... i.e., you select a forum and stay within its boundaries.

This drives me crazy as well. Hope they separate them soon.
