Cannot search thread titles.

Whenever I search the hot deals section and choose search in thread titles only it doesn't work. It gives me search results that have absolutely no key words I searched for in their titles, which is useless for me.

can you give an example resulting url, and also the url from which you performed the search?

It looks like when you search inside a forum, in redesign it's not holding the title only option.

As a temporary workaround, you can prepend what you're searching for with @title. So for BostonGirl's example above, in the search box, instead of just typing led monitor you would type @title led monitor.
