I would like just one thing Jeremy.

Hmm., how do i say it, you know like, a solved button or something. You see when a thread is answered and the OP has found his/her solution for the stated problem, the OP can't change the thread title to 'Solved', it just changes the title to that particular post. A 'Solved' button would be useful in such cases, wherein a simple 'Solved' entry will be added to the thread title.

Rest is fine.

I hate to insist on some features in something which is given free to me, but, sorry, I also hate to see if something worked well, and somehow this feature is removed.

I can check "show results as threads" or "show results as posts", but I can NOT choose whether I search in posts or in threads. There is simply to input to select that.

And it is unfortunately also not true that at least a complete thread must contains both keys. Try for example to search for "HTML printing". There are dozens of complete threads returned which exclusively contain "HTML" or "printing". That renders searching pretty useless.

Am I missing something?

Searching for "HTML printing" should never give back a thread that does not have both words. If you think it is, please point to the thread - a quick search did not show any anomalies like this.

You are right. Searching for "HTML printing" is undoable. Returned results contain the word "printing" and the word "html", but... almost every post contains a hyperlink. And hyperlinks often end with "html". It doesn't show up because this "html" is not highlighted.

The other case I tested for (I never base stupid statements on just one mistake) showed only one of the keys. But in this case the other key was hidden in an scrollable sub window.

Sorry again to waste your time.
