searching long threads


Well, here's the thing: if I'm searching for something invariably several threads pop up and I look at them, great. However, very long threads, like the "What would you like ported to linux" pop up also, and they do contain useful information, but I don't know of a useful way to jump directly to only the pages flagged by the search engine. Is there a way of doing that, or can that be implemented?

If you search "by post", you'll be automatically directed directly to the specific post not just the thread. You can also use the "Search this Thread" functionality once you've found a long thread.
