Is there a feature currently that "suggests similar existing threads" as in the previous vBulletin?
If so, could some one please highlight it or the process to see same?

Some of the add-ons available give similar threads when you start typing in a thread title. I think there is one that is similar to the vBulletin one, but it comes in part of package with other apps for $35 per year, every year!

Similar threads provided links below the thread being read. The linked threads showed approaches/solutions/discussions that could be directly referenced for focused help.

Search might work if you could identify the key word(s) /similar concept(s) involved, AND you could search with an and operator. Seems the default is or, and the return set is not focused.

See the Similar Threads list at the bottom of this page.

I agree that feature was really helpful to me when doing research. It found many threads that I had trouble finding with Google. It allows one "further reading" on a topic.
