WordPress.org Support Search limited to a Theme or other filter

    When we have a question about a Theme, WordPress.org asked us to do a search first. Problem is the search is not limited to the theme we are seeking support on. It is almost impossible to find out if a specific topic has been discussed in a single themes support forum. Please add a filter that says only search in X themes post.

    I'm thinking the same thing.

    Another idea is to add a second search bar that says Search for Theme Support by Theme. Then you would just put in your theme name and be taken to all the post only for that theme. I'm surprised this hasn't been suggested and it wasn't done years ago. How can we have all these Themes that have their support here with no way to get to those forums?

    Another vote here for this capability! So much useful information exists in the Support tab for my theme, the problem is that I have to scroll through pages and pages of it (or enter it as a new issue and then wait) because there is no ability to search only within a theme or plugin support tab.

    I see it's on the list, please please move it up! I'm sure all your users and theme/plugin developers will be forever grateful!

    I am astonished that this feature is not inherent in the forums. It is often the ONLY source of support for themes and without the ability to fine tune the search to the theme in question, it is literally like looking for a need in a hay stack!

    We know. And the problem is how OLD our forum code is. We have to rewrite a lot.

    The base for the forums was written over winter by Matt many years ago.
