Yeh, sort of. It found the thread as opposed to post, and in this case there was only 1 page, but for searches that return multiple threads with multiple pages it's still very time consuming.

Where it says 'Show Results as' at the bottom make sure you check 'posts' instead of 'threads'. Try the search again and it should only display that post. There are many ways you can refine your search to make it as broad or as specific as you like.

Thanks Joe, seems I need to experiment a bit more :D

No problem UF, glad to help. :)

One other search trick that I find particularly useful when doing a search for threads on a particular stock is to only search thread titles.

Put either the ASX code or the name of the company in the 'Search by Key Word' box and then change the drop down box just below it to read 'Search Titles Only'. Then click the 'Search Now' button and the only threads that will come up in the search results will be threads with the ASX code or company name in the thread title.

Of course instead of searching for threads on a particular stock you could be searching for threads with 'Uranium' or 'SMSF' in the title. By searching titles only you will narrow your search results to just threads that have your keyword of choice in the thread title. Easy peasy! :)

I think the biggest mistake people make when using the search function is to just use the drop down box instead of the 'Advanced Search'.

Joe - do you have some sort of timeline for when the changes will be introduced? Just curious so if not doesn't matter.

As long as there are no further delays I am planning to introduce the new design very late Friday night/early Saturday morning. But that is still tentative. It is requiring a lot of testing to get it right so there may still be delays.
