Hope I'm not being thick here , but , there does not seem to be a feature to look for posts by user name in the forum.
Could this be added ?

Okay so I did a few things to the Advanced Search:

- When you search, it now tells you what forum the post was in with a link at the end
- Added searching by username to the advanced search
- Added an extra search option on the advanced search page to list topics by a specific user, without searching the title text to just list their topics
- Added pagination as previously it was hard-coded to 30 items
- Made it so you can only search forums your user is allowed to view...woops

Let me know how you get on.

Ps. As a side effect, I double checked the article search code and that had a bug that always limited it to the first 50 titles even with the pagination - fixed.

Ok so tried it
First one does not work , cannot find any of the topics i started
Second one works just fine , finds the threads i posted in

The first one works fine, it just needs to actually give a message when you leave the text box blank as it doesn't allow a blank search query. Fixed that too.
