 Replying to [comment:21 vasoczki.ferenc@…]:
 > In this case, your code design is bad. I think, there are a primary key
 for each plugin / theme topic in your database, so is it a really hard
 think to write a " AND id = " . intval($_GET["id"])"; ?

 As I stated previously, it is not that simple. The plugins don't have
 their own individual forums. They have posts in a single forum, with meta
 data defining which topics go where. Additionally, the current (old)
 version of bbPress has very poor search capabilities to start with. This
 is why we have a custom Google search for the main one, instead of an
 actual search into the forums.

 None of this is possible until after the main forums are upgraded to a
 more recent bbPress. Despite what you think, it's not as simple as just
 'writing a query', and regardless, it is not as high a priority as other
 things on the site.
