Yes. I think the search engine should have an option to search the title of the posts. And/or another option that searches the first post and title.

Those are what the "Search all terms" and "Search for any terms or use query as entered" are used for, respectively. The "Search All Terms" would be useful for finding the title, whereas the second would be good for finding the content of the topic.

Anyways, the search has proven less than helpful in several instances that I've used it. Maybe update the 'quality' of the search engine? >_>?

How about searching topics and then linking directly to the specific page where the instance occurs? With big topics, searching 60+ pages can be a major hassle.

Unless it already does.

No idea - I can't find the search hack I installed a little while back, and that's the closest thing I found to matching E_s's request.

EDIT: I'm pretty sure this one is it. It's basically just a more specified search tool:
