Hullo ..

From what I remember, it used to be that if you used search to look for keywords, you'd get a list of either posts, or pages of a thread, that would have those keywords in them (dont remember which of those two things). The keywords would then be in a different colour.

But now, if I use search to look up on keywords, the results list seems to be an overall list of the threads in which the words crop up at some point or other, complete with a choice of page numbers, as in:

Let's talk about replacing GWBush in 2004.
[ Go to page: 1 ... 67, 68, 69 ]

Now that does me no good - on which of these 69 pages am I supposed to go look for my keyword?

Is it true the system changed, or am I hallucinating? :-)
And more relevantly, am I missing the easy way to use keyword "search"?

The default mode is now to show results by topic rather than by post. Scroll down on the search page and you'll see the choices. Choose by post, and it's back the way it useta be.

(I had to figure that one out, too.)
