Hi, This is a suggestion for the forum from a new mac mini user and a new 123macmini member. Since most forums here have a long list of topics, it would be more effective and convenient for all members (and admins) to find a "search topic" tool on each page of the Forums area. So anyone can quickly find the previously discussed topics for answer or opinion before rushing to create a new topic which is actually old and repeated. Thanks for consideration.

I think what you are asking for already exists.

There are a number of filters available in the drop down menus.

I think a bigger issue is using a descriptive title for the topic.

ie. please help!!!

isn't particularly useful. It makes it difficult to search the topic, it leads to repeat topics, it also promotes off topic discussion.

Hi Bill,

I got it. But it is way too heavy search tool. My original thought was to put a small search window on every page. There is no need to use such a complex and time consuming search tool for a quick scan on the old topic list. Usually the lame topic lines like "please help" are not the one that search users are looking for anyway. Thanks.
