    You can do this through the Advanced Search page, but I don't see any direct implementation for searching the current forum that you are in.

    I would like to suggest incorporating that functionality into the popup search menu. For example, when you are in a particular forum you can go to the Search menu and there is a checkbox for "this forum only." Simple. Elegant. Doesn't add clutter to the page. I think that would work well.

    Jake! Woot!
    My favorite from the old vB staff ;).

    Which brings up a really good point... Will we be able to use url parameters to script the search? That's HUGE from an integration with other packages standpoint.

    Ah, I remember when I wrote that guide.

    URL search submissions appear to work the same here. For example:

    It'll be awesome if we can do the URL searches. I was surprised at how useful they were when I started to use them for specific things like running a search through specific forums only.

    It has already been suggested somewhere. ;) I remember, because I supported it and also miss this great functionality that the even so great vb3.8 had.

    Having said that, I think this alpha release is mind blowing convincing already. What a hard needed breath of fresh air is going through the forum world right now!.

    That's really good news. Being able to put a parameterized search like that into a link is incredibly useful :).

    A little extra padding inside the blue tab wouldn't hurt visually.

    Agreed just a little and maybe ever some of that rounded corner goodness :p

    Nice! +1 to Mike's awesomeness score.

    Agreed with just a tad more padding inside the tab, but I like the implementation, nice and clean :).
