Restricting forum searches to one forum

Recommended Posts

Answering my own question. If your browser window isn't wide enough you won't see the community menubar. From there you can pick Forums to navigate to your forum, When the browser window is wide the Search field, when editing in it, shows a popup that allows one to limit the search to this forum only. If the browser window is narrower the search field looks and behaves differently and does NOT have an option to limit searches to the current forum.

Needless to say I have rather negative feelings about this bit of UI behavior.


Image 1: the menubar. If you see this then your browser window is wide enough.

Image 2: the wide-browser search popup, showing the filter option to limit the search to this forum.

Image 3: the "narrow"-browser search page. (It's not a popup, it's a whole page.)
