    Count me in on the feature request:
    Would love to see 'SEARCH' offered within this forum so that before posting i can see if there's an existing discussion that addresses my question/comment/concern, or where i can further share thoughts.
    It does sound like there’s a Q&A plugin for this ‘vanilla’ powered http://forum.mibandnotify.com/ as well as an additional filter plugin that builds on the Q&A plugin:

    In general, once there's more than several pages (representing a wealth of information, IFF accessible)... search is the ideal model v. navigation. Else it's more likely that common things will be reasked, and also likely that OldTimers w/in the forum will be disenchanted to re-engage if their old advice can't be releveraged (or at min re-linked to easily, if they can't find it).

    Here's a good example of an idea being reposted rather than built upon due to getting lost in the fray... which can be mitigated via SEARCH being offered:

    I can no longer edit my prior entry given the 1hr timelimit to do so (and I've spent a fair amount of time surfing/navigating this forum this morning as a result ;-), so adding another entry to this thread instead. That said...

    Appears there's another similar (bifurcated) thread on SEARCH here... which can be counted as couple additional votes)
    http://forum.mibandnotify.com/discussion/450/how-to-search-issues-in-here#latest

    NOTE: within that thread, there's a good workaround/suggestion by @TiTAN which is:
    in your favorite search engine, try searching:
