this is an option.

 

 

 

my prefered way to search is to simply hit google up...

 

site:geekzone.co.nz "runningman riding a pony"

 

 

 

works well for me.

Except that searches *for* a thread, not *within* a thread.

This. It will find the correct page (GZ is indexed pretty quickly by google), but it won't jump to the right part within that page (or thread).

Ctrl f is what I have been using, I just wondered if there was a more native forum option as it is on the really long threads that I tend to want to use it

Just click on the view as single page button that appears when the thread gets long, then ctrl-f
