Can we have a search box on these message boards please?

Like so we can do what we all tell everyone else to do, search the previous postings before making a request.

Apols if I have missed a previous request for this feature, this is because... ;-)

SETI@Home have, quietly and without fanfare, recently introduced a search box at the top level of the 'Message boards' menu - previously it was only shown on 'Questions and Answers'.

Let's hope that change makes it into the standard template, and gets copied to all other projects - who knows, even to this "technology demonstrator" site for the whole BOINC system /-) ?

It's been asked before and wish-listed in the past to have the existing search page link put to top of fora, but I'm not that particular... got it as an iconized bookmark in my Firefox toolbar... There is already a search add-in for Firefox to explore the unofficial BOINC Wiki and BOINCstats.... one for this forum would be handy too. Completely inapt in coding, I'll leave that wish to fill to others :O)

This feature exists on latest version of BOINC forum software. Search box is on top of the category list.
