Fixed Can't constrain search only to forum category

Affected version
2.0.x, 2.1.0


Active member
When browsing a forum category, such as's Resource and add-on releases [2.x], it is not currently possible to restrict the quick search to only the current forum category or threads. Without doing an advanced search, the only possibility is a side-wide search.


I expected to see these options:
  • Everywhere
  • Threads
  • This category
Since this feels like an oversight, I wasn't sure whether to submit this as a bug or a suggestion. :)
