XF 1.3 Search child forums from the quick-search?


Formerly CyclingTribe
Are there any settings or options that will change the default quick-search behaviour so that it searches child forums too?

If not, does anyone know of an add-on that will enable this behaviour?

I have recently expanded the classifieds forums on CycleChat but the quick-search box is virtually useless when trying to search from the top parts of the category tree - it just doesn't find anything:


... you have to drill-down to the individual forums to search, which sort of defeats the object really if you're looking for a carbon frame, carbon wheels, carbon seat post, etc.. ;)

It's everything or that forum only.

You have to use the main search page to further refine it.
