This is a “Request For Enhancement” or “Feature request” if you want.
Just like we have a “Search” input box when we click the categories etc. (on the posts listing of the homepage), it becomes very wanted to have the same functionality in the tabs of the “Pulldown” menu we get when we click our profile icon in top right.
This need gets stronger the more a forum user (like me) makes heavy use of the functionalities of the forum and wants to access things in the past.
- Many bookmarks
- Many topic alerts
- many private messages
Yes i know there is a button at the bottom of the listing in those tabs, but that needs another browser tab.
It is easier (and faster) to be able to filter the results inside that tab listing while we have a topic open in screen.
That way we can easier (and faster) copy links to relevant posts/threads into the current post we are editing at that time.
