    Yes, somehow. You need to use this plugin which is really powerful but not trivial to set up. And you will not be able to use it in a shared hosting environment: you'll need at least a VPS.

    @ToF The search functionality uses MySQL fulltext search. You could use this method to get related discussions on a shared server. The results would be relatively low quality.

    Sphinx Search is a full featured search engine that stores data about discussions/comments and returns high quality results. It uses some packages that are not installed on most shared servers.
