    Hi,

    This has to do with the forums on WordPress.org.
    How does one search within the forums?

    If I am on a current plugin support forum or a theme support forum...how do I search within that forum without having to resort to the search box at the top right of this page?

    I find this a major frustration with these support forums and would love to see a major improvement on it?

    Oh - so would we! But the search here is what it is and- yes - we know it sucks. Improving the forum searchability is on the ToDo list but it's a really long list. In the meantime, Google is probably a better option for you.

    Thanks Esmi. It's would just be nice to be able to search the sub forum for questions that have already been asked on that very specific theme. I can Google it, that's what I normally do but it's the having to sift through all the rubbish to get to what you want that's part of the frustration.

    Thanks for letting me know though, nice to know something is being done about it.
