Lack of Interest search showing "no results found" on threads visible to members only

    I have set permissions for certain Forum-nodes to "Thread-Content to be visible by registered Members only" (ACP: "View thread content" is set to "revoke" for "Unregistered/Unconfirmed").

    So literally it is showing the Threads and Thread-Title, but when clicking onto the Thread, it tells the visitor to "log-in or sign-up". It does not show the thread-content
    This is fine.

    However, when performing the "Advanced Search", then those threads (for which I have set the permission "Thread-Content to be visible by registered Members only") are not returned in the search-results.

    So why are Thread-titles visible all across the Forum (which is fine), but the same Thread-titles (without Thread-content) are actually not returned as a search-result when performing a search ?
    At least the Thread-titles (without the Thread-content) should show-up in search-results.

    Instead of showing the "Thread Content", it should display a message saying: "Thread-Content is visible to registered Members Only. Please log-in or sign-up here."

    This is the designed behavior. I've moved this to suggestions.

    Further to this same idea, I can't see in the permissions how you can simply stop registered folks from searching a particular forum - one where they can see and post???

    As an example, most forums would desire to keep off-topic and other such forums out of the search results.
    Shouldn't one of the permission radio buttons say "search this forum"? (allow, never, etc.)
