Having posts returned instead of threads can give somewhat repetitive results. Maybe it is just because of how long I have been using vbulletin, but I really like having threads returned when I first search for something. It lets me locate actual topics first instead of potential off topic remarks in unrelated threads. Once I find a thread I am interested in, I find myself searching inside that thread for the relevant information I originally set out to find. Would it be difficult to offer a sort of mix of the two? How hard would it be to return something like the following: Say I searched for "ipod touch" I get search results that display a topic, and a number of "sub-result" posts within that topic that contain the keyword(s) I searched for. Thread: Which music player to get? Post #3, by AudioXPhile "...used a zune, creative xen, and others. Get an ipod touch because...." Post #12, by SoccerMom ".. say get one, but my ipod touch died after a month..." Post #22, by SomeGuy22 "I kind of want an ipod touch. let us know how it turns out if..." Thread: How many MP3's do you own? Post ..... There could then perhaps be a button to "search this thread for full results" to search the thread fully. Sorry if I didn't explain this clear enough, but thats the best I can think of, short of opening up photoshop and drawing it out.
