Please submit new pull request to [login to view URL] that will add search functionality to that content management system (ZeroTalk) and solve the issue described in this post: [login to view URL]
I think it may be an looking glass icon next to button "+ Start new topic", once clicking the search box appear, just by typing 3+ characters without hitting enter, the page will show relevant topics having searched word/phrase (incl. spec. characters) in its title, texts, comments. The "X" button will hide results, empty, close search box to show everything like it was before search. It can be good if search can use operators like:
one OR two +mustinclude -"excluded phrase"
Second feature is to please create new pull request for the issue [login to view URL] to make all new topic starters automaticaly subscribed to their topics.
Overall i wish new features have as minimal impact into existing code as possible and search feature should consider the local SQL database can grow to lets say 100MB+ so the querying should be light even on slow old computer.
