    Let's say I do a search. The search results will show all threads that contain the word/phrase that I searched on. The problem is, for threads with multiple pages, how do i know where to navigate within that thread to find the relevant information? Is it possible, or do i have to page through the thread to find what i'm looking for? In some cases it's not a big deal, but in other cases where there are a dozen pages or more it is a pain.

    Use google instead of the in-house search.

    "****** site:sevenstring.org" where the *** is your search term. You can break it down to the specific thread by replacing the sevenstring with the thread URL.

    ^ Exactly what he said. I think I used the in-house engine like once or twice when I had been registered here for only a few days. I don't even know why it exists, honestly. :lol:
