Feature Request: Extend Search to Topic Text

Currently, on the Fogbugz form, performing a search only searches the Topic subject.  It would be very useful to extend the search to include the message text.

This is available if you use Microsoft SQL Server as your FogBUGZ database with Full-Text Search installed.

So does that mean you are not using Microsoft SQL Server as your FogBUGZ Forum database?  Or you do not have Full-Text Search installed?  Or are using Jet instead?

I would think that you would be using Microsoft SQL Server with Full-Text Search installed in order to show potential customers the power of Fogbugz.

Ahh! You're commenting on the searching of THIS forum, not on FogBUGZ itself...

I think Joel misunderstood you.

While we'd love to add features to this forum, even ones that are greatly requested, we're hard at work adding features to FogBUGZ and CityDesk.  As soon as we get some down time to devote to less critical tasks, we'll be sure to consider your suggestion.

As always, thanks for your feedback.
