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 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.
Ofcourse i’m serious, else i would not post these topics
But because the forum’s platform (software) is totally new to me, i post those topics and explain the need for them.
Only those that have in-depth knowledge of the software know what is needed, the closest persons to me are the ones running the forum
That’s why i start asking here for the fastest solution when possible by the staff.
If it takes more efforts like you pointed out, then you and others point that out to me (no offense taken)
Most of the time i’m a person with ideas, a lot of times i can contribute to realizing those ideas with coding by myself, and sometimes i won’t be able to do that because of time called “Reality”
