[resolved] Wishlist for Support Forum improvements (3 posts)

    I'm pretty new here but not new to using forums and searching. After nearly 2 months, I still can't get the hang of and wish it were more like what I'm used to. So, here's my wishlist of how I wish these Support Forums would work.

    1) At the very least, 'Next Page' links should work. They do for each forum but not for tags. For example, how do I view the next pages of http://wordpress.org/tags/permalinks?

    2) Better search. I find the search function painful to use. It's very difficult to find what I'm actually searching for. I wish there was an advanced search with option fields so I could narrow (or be more specific with) my search. It would be nice to be able to search based on title or content, forum name, tag name, author, date, etc.

    3) Email notifications on replies. I guess this is not as critical as the previous 2 but still. I don't always have time (or remember) to keep checking back for replies so it would be nice if I could email notifications of replies to my posts.

    If anything, I hope the search function would improve. Thanks!

    1. A fix should be around soon.

    2. The best way is to use google with the query
    site:wordpress.org/support your_search_term
    Alternatively, I have a Firefox Forum / Codex search plugins here: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress

    3. Unlikely. RSS no good ?

    1. Cool!

    2. The search plugins are great! The page is very useful too! Thanks!!

    3. RSS? Hmmm... I knew one day I'd have to figure out this whole RSS thing. Off to Google...
