Any chance we can update the search function to include a: 1) Search for threads started by user option, or 2) Search by key words thread titles only option.

I've been having difficulty throwing month old statements back into people's faces because I fail at the search function here. I've been having to search by user posts, and that is time-consuming and inefficient.

WE still have to finish reindexing the all the posts. Then I can work on that one.

So, you can't just implement that feature and have it work from here-on-out, and ignore all the previous posts?

I could, but something like that would likely change the database, and thus make the script that indexes the posts inoperative. If we finish using that thing, then it won't need to be run again, and we can change the search tables however we like.
