XF 1.2 Does the quick search of a forum include child forums?

    Having tested it, I think a quick search with 'search this forum only' ticked does not include sub forums.
    Can someone confirm please?
    I had someone search in a category with this option ticked and, of course, it returned no results. Which from a UI point of view is going to be confusing.

    It is just that individual forum, not including sub forums.

    Thanks Brogan. Then it makes no sense to have that option ticked by default if you're in a category (which can only be the case if you have the admin option Node & Forum List -> Create Pages for Categories ticked)?

    It's not checked by default.


    Admittedly it could probably do with being removed in that context...

    The more I think about it, in the context of a category in its own page, that checkbox is superfluous and doesn't make much sense so it is probably a bug.

    Yep, not checked for categories. I'll report it as a bug, thanks.
