We just rolled out some new functionality for commenting and forums:
- Forum search. Long overdue, you'll now see a forum search box to the left that you can use to search topic titles and topic messages. That's it for now, but coming soon we'll add the ability to search within specific forums, date ranges, specific users, etc. The infrastructure supports it - it's just a matter of presenting it in a consistent and decent UI.
- Subscribe to comments on topics, completed builds, and build guides. You can now toggle a flag on any topic, build guide, or completed build to receive notifications on any comments posted on those items. Under the topic message (or build description), look for "Follow comments". Click that to toggle your comment subscription to the item. If the flag is set, you'll get notifications whether someone replied to you or anyone else. If you have email notifications set up, then you'll also receive email notifications for those as well. You can also view all your comment subscriptions in your user profile, should you want to visit any or remove any.
