I'm always thinking of ideas for postings in threads that I unsubscribed to ages ago. I can often remember words in the thread title. It would be useful to be able to search for these words.

This seems obvious. Apologies if it's been suggested already (I had a look but couldn't find it). Apologies if it's already possible by some convoluted path.

It's sort of on the list <./>Development-Features</.> if you look near the bottom of the page. I agree it would be very useful if the search, at what ever level, could include the thread title.

It has been suggested before but it probably needs to be brought up again occasionally (until/unless it ever does work!).

Well that post took a long time to get through. smiley - erm The BBC ate the first attempt completely (failed AddThread page). The MBs have been bad for days too. I wonder if it is all the BBC.

There is only one thing worse than being Gosho, and that is not being Gosho

This idea has been brought up several times, and it would be an excellent feature.

I've been getting a lot of error messages in the last two or three days - parsing errors, XML errors, and the usual BBC error page, but h2 has been extra slow (more than usual) for over a week.

We're hoping to be able to look at the whole nature of the search engine soon, so we'll put this forward as an idea. No guarantees, but it certainly makes sense to me. smiley - cheers

(And yes, we've been experiencing a lot of annoying glitches too, recently and have raised a call about it)
