    Using the GBAtemp v3 skin, when you're viewing a forum, like http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showforum=108, there is a nice obvious centred text box at the bottom with a button next to it which says "Search forum", which searches the current forum. At the bottom of any thread, there is a much less obvious text box, kinda hidden in the page furniture, above the Add Reply button, where you can type in a search term to search the current thread.

    It took me a long time to notice the search thread feature, and I think lots of people overlook it. Could it be made more obvious, maybe by positioning it like the search forum feature?

    The 'Enter Keywords' thing to search a thread is particularly overlookable, as it just doesn't look like a search box!

    Thanks for your suggestion. We'll take this into consideration, especially when creating a new skin down the line [​IMG]

    Thank you very much! I've been looking for this thing for ages, now! =O

    Always wondered why there wasn't such a "function" in here. Never would've noticed if it weren't for this topic.
