I am currently testing a new search addon. Let me know what you think!

Edit: Just to add, I don't like the way the page loads first and then the Quick Search box pushes everything down. This aesthetic jars with me. I might remove it! But I do like the functionality!

??? Good question??
I added a search term, hit enter???
Perhaps an overview of the intended process would help.
Seems dead in the water for me???:confused: I'm on my laptop.

I suspected it was here, but could be mistaken...

Correct. You don't need to hit enter. It shows as you type.

Ok, I think it doesn't work while reading the thread. Try it in index page or in subforum.

Hmm. Seems a bit flaky to me
Tried searching for a topic - OK but the existing search is far better.
Repeated but this time searching for a member name - nothing happened

I don't think it searches names.

Not clear what it is searching --definitely is not Advanced Search equivalent. And if it can't be invoked from the page you're reading, how and when to use it may be an issue. Perhaps a little trial and error will focus its usefulness.

Before I found you had to be on a different page, I tried How to use Quick Search

I tried it from an index page and just put in a few keywords, like dlookup, nasa, global, coronavirus. It quickly brought up relevant topics for me. The idea is it is not a detailed search, but it is instant.

The view of all the forums. I am not sure what the correct name for it actually is.

Probably. I am just seeing what people think of it.

Due to popular non-demand, I have removed Quick Search.
