Not a bug Search for threads in forum, but not sub-forums

Pretty minor bug, but seems a bug nonetheless.

If I search as shown in first screenshot ,


results from non-selected forum are included, as shown in second screenshot

I can't reproduce this locally or here on XenForo. I suspect that those threads were in the specified forum at some point and were moved out? If so, were they moved out via a query or did an error occur while moving them? If that's the case, then that's the cause -- the necessary bits of the search index weren't rebuilt correctly.

You can rebuild the search index in the admin CP to resolve this.
