A brought forward suggestion for consideration, please:
Some while ago members were told that this issue would be resolved soon.
How soon is soon?

One used to be able to find all threads that contained, for instance, the word certificate in the title.

When you consider that most requests are headed as

Help Needed
How Do I Find

or something else that has no mention of the word ie Certificate in the header, surely then searching for a specifica word in the heading is pretty futile.

Far too many posts headings are not imho worded in way that is of use. I know I get quite frustrated with the obscure nature of many of the headings....
