Title: Change Search box to search all forums versus the one you are currently in
Post by: jayd on March 27, 2011, 03:22:19 pm
I've got bit by this a couple of times.  The search box on the community site defaults to searching the current forum you are in.  I generally want to see any results.  Could it either default to the full site or have a radio button that allows this option?

Thanks

I don't see an option to change the forum's behavior.  Here's a snippet from the documentation:

The simple search field located at the top of the default SMF theme will, when viewing topics filter search results to just that topic. The same thing goes for Boards as well, when viewing a Board the simple search field will filter what you searched to just results in that particular board.

Im not familiar with SMF, but check out this thread:

It looks like you can do something to the Search box to allow it to search the current topic/board/site
