Duplicate Filter or search threads by prefix

    It would be great if you could filter threads or search threads by prefix.

    I realise you can filter threads by prefix on a per forum basis, but I would like to be able to filter a prefix e.g. from the new posts or recent posts list.

    Or search for all threads with a certain prefix.

    Anyone else?

    The first suggestion may already have been made, I'll check.

    As for the search functionality, that is already possible:

    Not quite. Originally I thought that doesn't work because it won't search for all threads with a prefix, you are prompted to add a search query or member.

    However I found a workaround which is to use a wildcard search, e.g. **** and then specify the thread prefix.

    This is not good because many people wouldn't know to do that.

    Using a wildcard is the correct thing to do in that instance.

    Yes, but my point is very few people would know to do that.
