    When I search it gives me a thread, but no page .. am I doing it wrong? I realize that could be the extent of the search function, but to search for a single post among 100+ pages is a bit ..

    Same for me. For instance, If I already could find what I am looking for in a 600+ pages of the Draft Thread, I wouldn't use the search option at all.

    But, it's on us, I think. Most probably, we don't know how to search exactly.

    No, No, No... This is the an internet message board. We shift blame on others and we overreact.

    As a solution, I now search the thing that I'm looking for then I chose a thread among the results, then in the thread, I hit the "Search Thread" option which is on the thread menu bar and search the term again. This time it gives the results as posts.

    I know it's not ideal but I couldn't do better.
