How about the ability to search within a given thread? Or a given section? In other words, wherever you are on the site, a "Search within here" field would be extremely useful.

[EDIT] That would include, if possible, searching within my posts, when in that section.

This seems to me like an essential feature yet unavailable. Essential when you want to reply within a thread to find beforehand whether it was already covered.

For instance, before creating this thread under "Site Suggestions", I wanted to know whether there was another thread talking about "Search" within "Site Suggestions". But if I searched for "Search" on Tonymac, I would get 82,000 hopeless results. I tried to get a bit smarter with advanced search but didn't get anywhere.

I hope this is technically possible.

Thanks for considering it.

Agree would be fantastic. Many thanks for all the goodness around here by the way.
