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

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.

    1st video- That's why I hate ordering stuff online, if I can just go pick it up myself nearby. Wal-Mart online did that to me years ago, sent wrong item, I went to Wal-Mart by me to return, but noo, I had to mail it back and wait.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    99% of the time ordering online I have had flawless experiences, only time something was messed up, I ordered a big TV from Amazon and it came smashed the box was literally like some one jumped up and down on it, didn't even open it, contacted Amazon sent them pictures, they made me open it and take more pictures, free label to return it and they sent another. So it was relatively painless. But still annoying.
