I threw together a quick version 1.0 of forum search this weekend. It only searches the thread name/subject and not individual messages at this point, but I figured that's a start. It makes it easy enough to find old threads when users know there is a thread about something but just can't find it.

From a technical standpoint, searching the long text of the messages is a little more complicated, as is returning meaningfully ordered results with potentially a lot more hits. I'll get to it eventually, but hopefully this will hold you all over for a while.

shit man! I was just thinking that this would be helpful since I couldnt find a specific thread for like 20 mins last time I was on here.

I mean it, add topless pics of Angela Gossow in place of Randy Blythe at the top of the screen...thats the only thing missing from "Perfect metal website ever" requirements.

LOL FAN. Thanks guys. Glad someone will get some use out of it. I know, I had trouble finding a few threads here and there too.
