Keyword search request

Hey Alpha,

I'm sure you don't have enough work to do, so I have a request for the keyword search function for whenever you get around to it.

Can it be changed so that it doesn't search the thread title when you're searching for a word? For example, if I search for the word "breakfast" in SE++ right now, it'll bring up every single post the Breakfast Time thread.

Also, would it be possible to change it so that it searches in the person named in a quote? As in, if I egosearch for "geek" in SE++, it will bring up any mentions of that word in posts, but it currently doesn't bring up any posts if someone used the [ quote="The Geek" ] BBcode.

    I'm pretty sure you can already do that. Check the lower options, you can switch between searching titles and text or just searching text.

    Edit: Yep, confirmed.

    Durrrrr on my part then.

    But the request about the searching in the quote bbcode still stands.

    I actually have the converse of this problem... I think.... I search for thread titles and only get words matching from posts within all other threads.... I cannot see the option to search for keywords in title or post either....

    Why don't you search for [ quote="The Geek" ]?
