I don't know if this is even possible, but I thought it was worth a shot.

If I do a search for a term, I'll occasionally match a thread with multiple pages. However, if my keyword doesn't appear on the first page of the thread, it seems I have to scroll through the thread manually looking for my match. It would be great if there was an option to jump straight to the first matching post.

Just an idea.

when you search choose to "show posts" instead of "show threads".

In those results, clicking on the thread title above where it is indicated who it is posted by takes you to the thread, but clicking on the thread title under where it indicates who the poster was, then it will link to the specific post.

Ah, I hadn't figured out that the top line in the post result was actually a link, since it looks like the rest of the text. Perhaps that should be made a little more obvious? Maybe there should be explicit Go To Thread and Go To Post links or something.
