Just recently I've been trying to find a thread I created a while ago. I tried the Neowin search as well as searching via Google (Which usually works pretty well). This is the second thread I've been unable to find in the last 2 weeks.

What I would like is a search box under your profile which only searches the title of your threads.

Thanks.

if anyone wants to go on a thread hunt you can attempt to hunt down the following thread for me.

I made a thread about 6 months regarding dodgy tech support that when you contact most major companies like Linksys, Netgear and so on all they do is want to charge you $200 to clean up your computer.

Neowin's forum search is damn terrible.

The functionality is already there.

Click your or someone elses profile, at the top right above your 'likes' click 'find content', then on the right click 'only topics'

Yeah, I got bitten by this issue also.

I was looking for a topic I made about a RAID issue. I couldn't find it on the forums because the cutoff was too early, and RAID isn't exactly an uncommon keyword on the forum :|

Search in IPB kinda sucks now days >.>

Also, I suspect Neowin has handicapped the search slightly to stop it from eating into general forum performance. Running searches on the DB does chew up a fair amount of process time.

It's not the most elegant way, but if you remember what the topic was about just do what I said a few posts up, use the search function in your browser, press f3, click next page, press f3, click next page, etc.. until you find your result.
