I have the problem with same thought names too; and wanted to suggest to show parent thoughts, when searching and linking to a similiar thought name.
this is already implemented, I see.
If I search for example "ideas" and the brain has more then two thoughts with this name I can find "ideas < 2014" ; "ideas < gardening" etc. with the thought parents.
- but if the brain has only one thought with the same name, there is no parent shown.
so every time I create a second similiar thought, there is a problem: I have to link it to some thought and after this I can see, which parent this thought has, and after this deciede if this is the right or wrong thought and I create a new one then.
(If the thought name is unique like "hasi123" I will remember the parent in my mind of course, but if I have a lot of simple thoughts, like "ideas" , "to do" , "2014" etc... I will not remember this.)
so it would be much better to see the parents in every thought, not only in case of more then two similiar thoughts, - in the search box as also in the thought creating area.
(Moderator, please move this to the right thread if there is one. I have not found it...)
