    I haven't found this function so far, but often there are threads with 50 and more pages and i want to search some terms directly inside this thread. how can i do that?

    Unfortunately, your only real option is to brute force it. While it is a feature of the software the forum uses, for some reason UT has it disabled.

    You can just use Google to search within the specific forum threads.

    For example, the following thread has 8 pages - https://forum.unity3d.com/threads/updated-amplify-motion-quality-vector-based-motion-blur.215368

    On page 8 there is the misspelt word "wich"

    If you go to www.google.com and then search for:

    site:https://forum.unity3d.com/threads/updated-amplify-motion-quality-vector-based-motion-blur.215368 wich

    You will see that the above google search will take you straight to the match on page 8 :)

    Thank you for your suggestions! :)
    It's a shame that there is no function like this in this big forum.

    I made a browser extension to search in threads a while back, but the built-in forum feature has finally been enabled :)
