I love the forum and use it a lot in my campaign for ideas and lore. I have one issue I'd like to address with the search feature, though. Currently, when I search for a topic the search merely will return the thread that contains the search criteria. I would love it if the page where the search criteria was located would be highlighted, as many of the scrolls are many pages long, this seems to especially troubling with Ed's responses which are also often the most useful for lore.

Hope that it is something that could be easily added!

Well met

Indeed, it is a known issue and limitation and quite annoying that it does not record and return the actual location. We will not be rectifying this in the current version, but will be a feature in the next forum and site version. Apologies for the inconvenience in the meantime.

The mighty google search genie can often find relevant scrolls more quickly than the Candlekeep search genie when including the powerful command word within search invocations.

Most browsers contain a "Find" or "Search" function which can highlight text on a page. For Chrome-based browsers this is invoked by pressing Ctrl-F.
