Could you implement a "search" for subscribed threads


My problem is that I have now close to a thousand threads subscribed. Sometimes I remember having taken part in a discussion (e.g. about framebuffer) but I don't know where anymore.

So I would really appreciate a feature like e.g. you click on "My subscriptions" and there in the dark blue menu is a search integrated just like in the usual threads. But this one allowes to search in a particular or in all subscription folders for keywords in title or bodies. That would really be great...

I like this idea and we'll certainly keep it in mind for a future release. In the mean time, keep in mind that you can search all threads you've posted in (but not ones you've subscribed to but not posted in) by using the advanced search.

Yeah, well, the functionality is there but this is also circuitous. From the point of ease of use it would be more intuitive if one could do it when one clicks on "My posts" and had a dark blue "search" menu handy in the usual place.

As an aside: In the left column it says my number of posts is about 1400 but when I click on "My Posts" it says page 1 to 50 of 600 posts? How comes the discrepancy? (Not complaining about a lost opportunity to boast, I know others have lots more ).

The number of search results is limited for resources reasons.
