#101157 - Advanced Search definitely needed!
Responding to: Mahmood Elnasser's previous message

it is getting quite difficult to retrieve information posted in the past.

I agree. The 'Search' facility has always been quite basic.

So I suggest 2 methods of improvement to the 8052 forum:
1. give the user the ability to go to threads between certain dates.
2. Giving the option of displaying threads sorted out by subject, to get the best out of this great forum.


3. Add search options like "Exact Phrase", "All Words", "Any Word", and modifiers to require or exclude words - much like Google, really!

4. Option to search titles only or "body" only

5. Search by Author

6. Wildcards

Of course, it still relies on people actually bothering to use the 'Search'...
