I’m sometimes having a hard time finding the right topic when I need to merge - especially when users use very similar topic names (bad form, I know, but this usually only surfaces during such operations). It would be great if we could paste the topic URL into the search dialog and get the exact hit.
I’ve thought about this so many times before, but i have never put the request into words. Thanks for doing that!
My (similar) usecase: i know the target topic for the particular posts that i want to move, and have it open in a different tab. It’s much easier to copy the target url (AltD + CtrlC) and paste it in the move modal instead of having to type the name of the post, then search through the multiple results discourse returns.
My current work around is to edit the title of the topic I need to search for and enter a random code, then search for that code
If I understand correctly, I think this is already possible. I only use links when merging to prevent errors, never failed me!
See here, I’m searching on URL
Argh, you’re right! I don’t know why this didn’t work for me yesterday but it does now.
@moderators can you please remove this topic?
I would like this to be saved in some wiki related to moderation though. It’s a really useful feature!
