Forum searching by topic

At the moment, when you search the forums the options are:

Search topic title and message text
Search message text only

But you can't search by topic title only, meaning that you'll usually get lots of irrelevant results because a common word is in a post in an irrelevant thread. Every now and then I come across forums without the title search, and it boggles my mind why forum designers would leave such as essential thing out.

Any chance it could be added?

I doubt it, they did not make phpBB forum server software.

Server software? What do you mean?

The latest version of phpBB does support title searching....
