    Go to Control Panel and make topics display 50 posts per page (the max). Then use Ctrl+F to search for keywords.
    Of course, it doesn't work well for topic with hundreds of posts. [​IMG]

    Does not work for Lite skin (or Classic skin either I presume).
    The search bar is there, but it always comes up with no results.

    I'm using the Lite skin and tested it on this thread and it works fine.

    I figured out the problem. You have to wait an hour or so after the topic is created before the search can successfully find anything.

    Edit: Scratch that. The problem lies within the keywords. Try searching the word "there" in this topic.

    Hah. I know your IP, Hatsu!

    I couldn't resist. I had to search it up. So you live in Perth, Australia. I know that. You live near 'Lake Monger Dr.'. Your ISP is 'iiNet Limited' and *shock* you use dial-up. *faints*
