Hey. In one of my previous threads i made, certain words turned out red without me even doing anything to make it like that. Then after other people posted, the same words that were red in my post were red in thiers. Here it is Keeping Panther Clean...?

Now I have noticed this in another thread.

Questions about the iBook, is it realy so great?


What's Up with this?

In the actual url you will see it says "highlight=rust" so it highlights the word "rust" on that page. Same for the other link except it highlights "Panther" "Clean" and "keeping".

It takes away the red because the boards are not told to highlight the words now

Say you remember a post that had somebody talking about deoderant. So you do a search for "deoderant" and 1 or 2 posts come up. You click one but its a really long one. Luckily the highlight feature was on to make "deoderant" stand out.

Its so when you do a search for something and you open the thread you can go through it quickly to find the keywords you searched for
