Is there a forum feedback link/section where we can post issues with the forum itself ?

I have one. The search engine seperates words put into double quotes.

Ex: "create link"

it does not search for the exact sentence, instead it does a +create +link google type of search.

I think this type of search should be available from the default search field and not through advanced/options (if it should exist there)

Yes, we have a section called Forums Discussion. I'll move this there for you.

That's strange, I have just edited my thread since it got moved to change the title. It allowed me to change it but when I go back in the thread list, the title hasn't changed.

While typing this reply, I also see the title hasn't changed.

A forum bug ????

A forum bug ????No. You successfully changed the title in your first post. Only a moderator or admin can change the title for the thread list. I'll do that for you right now.

Yes, you're right, this feature should be enabled by default. We're too familiar with Google search, then it will confuse us a bit if not enabling advaced options in forum search function. Hope this will be fixed asap :)

As a workaround, you can always do a Google search:


site:ubuntuforums.org "create link"
