    Compatible XF Versions:
    • 1.2
    • 1.3
    • 1.4
    This add-on is not needed if you're using:


    This is a simple add-on that unchecks option Search this forum only that is checked by default in XenForo. This means it doesn't matter if you're located in a subforum, using the quick search will search through all forum, not only the current you're browsing.

    I found this very useful on my board and my users are less confused.

    Agree with the other reviewer that this is a simple but very useful modification. I know that I personally use the search all forums function much more often than "this forum only", and I believe that most other users probably do also, so this just makes good sense
