    Hi, you should add a search function.
    Without a search function, peoples have to navigate to thoudsands of thread to find what they need.
    Many like me will just make duplicate thread. We probably have to many duplicate thread in here.

    it would be useful if the search allowed us to use wild cards or delivered 'similar' results, esp' in the case of misspellings at either end.

    Also to search only in the thread you are in, not the entire forum.
    Like a search drop down link in the thread that only brings up results from that thread.

    Maybe it has it, haven't looked but to search a word and a member name... like head in clouds (auto populate name as you type) then custard as a key word and it will bring up only posts from HIC that have custard in the post forum wide.

    Oh yeah, there you go.

    Now a thread tool to do a easy search in the thread your in. Say in the orchid modification thread you remember someone finding replacement screws and a link posted but you don't want to turn through 100+ posts so you search "screw" in that thread.
    You can kind of do that in the main search by drilling down through the drop down list but there are tons of sub forums listed and i think the furthest you can drill down would be rebuildable atomizer sub forum, not that specific thread.

    Well you sort of can via Google. You type site: followed by pasting in the thread's url [then leave a space] and type the search criteria.
