bbPress Live Topic Suggestions

Description

We developed this tool for our bbPress support forms over at InboundNow. Our goal was to reduce the custom support load by suggesting related topics to the user as they constucted their new topic title.

Mission accomplished.

Helpful and Essential Feature

Being able to see a list of similar topics makes it easier for me to ensure I make a unique title. Also, it helps users of my forum (http://dcjtech.info/forums/) to see already posted questions and answers with similar titles. This plugin reminds me of the feature used on Stack-Overflow (and related/affiliated) websites.
