    Can we add the ability to limit the search functionality to an individual thread (vs. site-wide or forum-wide) or conversations (e.g., to find information specific to a thread?

    For example... when seeking specific info about a popular hotel you don''t want to get results for other hotels in the area. However...not all posters may have included the hotels name in their post so a site-wide search will miss posts. And, master threads for popular hotels get quite long!

    Thank you!

    This is potentially a good idea, as the discussions could potentially get quite lengthy as milepoint.com becomes more and more popular.

    FlyerTalk already has the capability to search within a thread.

    I have always wanted, however, to narrow a search to results already found during an initial search. This could really facilitate searching for specific information...

    If you know who started or posted a topic and in what forum, you can narrow down the search results considerably through advanced search.

    Of course over time this will become less narrow as MP content is built.
