    Most of those are in the Search up in the bar (between Rules and My Page). The "Google Custom Search" is not very helpful, but the bar Search is.


    ETA: The "bar" Search option is Boolean, so you can combine and exclude options with keywords (AND, OR, NOT) [​IMG]

    There is a lot of that already there.

    You can use keywords in a thread or post, search by post or topic author, search by forum.

    The search is powerful once you know how to use it.

    Quote:Terrie said it. Have you actually looked at the search tool? Here. See all that info we can get? https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/search.php

    IMO there's plenty already.

    You can go through peoples' posts to find out where and what they've posted, and BYC just got the new search tool where you can jump to any page of the thread.
