To be honest I don't even like using the search for NodeBB because it doesn't help me find what I need, it's too much text to look through because it shows the whole entire post with HTML and all which is confusing. If I'm looking for a particular keyword it should highlight a snippet of that keyword. The whole search is not of my taste, in which case no matter how you style it or think you've got it, the problem is in the core of the search. Another thing is, why do we not have live search? Lets live up to being the forum of the future please, thanks.
This, topics are quite the pain to find through the search, as a result we do get a lot of duplicate topics, but it's difficult for me to link to the original topic, because I sometimes can't find it. should definitely be a core feature rather than an optional addon. Search is one of those necessities, along with being able to login and type on a keyboard.
Another pet peeve of mine. Why should you have to click a tab just to see if your format is correct?
