Suggestion for Change (5 posts)

    Three suggestions:

    1. I log onto the forum to search for help on a topic. If I could type a keyword (words) to look for previous posts on the same topic, it would be helpful, but I can't find where to do that.

    2. I scroll down to page x and find a request for help that I feel I can offer something. I post my response and after I post it, I'm taken back to the top of page 1. I'd like to be returned to the point I was at when I clicked the request that I wanted to respond to.

    3. Could we have a column indicating the original topic's author. Sometimes I might want to go back to a post written by Joe Smith, but his name is no where to be found since the only name is that of the last person who responded to the original post.

  2. We use tags here, instead of keywords, so http://wordpress.org/tags/mysql

    Item 2 is a bug, and we know, but item three isn't going to happen since we moderators need to know who answered last ;) Each post, in about this topic (on the right), shows who wrote it.

    On my question 1; okay, you use tags instead of key words. Where do I enter a keyword to facilitate a search?

    My question 2 is an irritant, but not life-threatening.

    On my question 3; The original poster does NOT display on a Forum list. The columns, left to right. are Topic, Posts, Last Poster, Freshness. I can understand you moderators needing to know who the last person to post to a particular query, but what about us lowly users? Going back to a particular post would be a much easier thing to do if the original writer's name was listed. Surely, the forum can handle one additional column. Having to open a post to see who originally wrote it is not very user friendly as compared to listing the originator's name on the forum listing.

    q1) Your browser's address bar. See the example ipstenu posted.

    I look at that search field every time I go into the forum and never saw it! Sorry.
