 It's hard to believe that such a basic function is not available within

 This would cut down on a lot of extra posts and research time (for both
 users and developers) when looking for answers that may have already been

 Come on WordPress!  You folks are so good at everything else, take care of

 Replying to [ticket:7 Daedalon]:
 > There should be options for searching the support forums of individual
 plugins and themes.
 > For example if I'm looking for a specific thread of
 [http://wordpress.org/plugins/events-manager/ Events Manager]'s
 [http://wordpress.org/plugins/qtranslate/ qTranslate] compatibility from
 September-October last year,
 http://wordpress.org/search/events+manager+qtranslate gives 827 threads.
 The following options to narrow the list down would be helpful:
 > - Limit search to one support forum area
 > - Limit search to topics opened by / replied to by certain users (a
 comma-separated list)
 > - Limit time range of when the topic was opened / replied to
 > - Limit the amount of replies (eg. at least 7, at most 10)
