It sure would be nice if there was a way to search a Forum to see if your problem has already been posted and responded to. Over time the same questions get asked over and over.
As an alternative, maybe the existing forums could be organized into groups of similar threads. Sort of sub-forums. Like putting all the string questions together somehow.
So how does one put in an enhancement request???

I'm a little puzzled by this. There is a search facility already, which we encourage all people to use as much as possible. Look for the word "search" near the "Post Reply" button at the top of this page.
Are you asking for something else?

The Search utility doesn't work very well or at least "has a bug". See this thread http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum10/HTML/000222.html

Paul Ralph is correct. There seems to be some sort of problem. We are considering upgrading the software to see if that makes the problem go away. But if we upgraded, we would lose several little customizations we have made to the software.
