It's always bugged me somewhat that there's no navigational context to the search page/tab you're currently viewing.

I've always felt it would be appropriate for a relevant nav tab to be highlighted depending on the selected search tab.

I've just discovered this is quite easily possible:

As the controller object is available in XenForo_Search_DataHandler_Abstract::getSearchFormControllerResponse() You can very easily set the major/minor route sections:


So this suggestion is to a) make people more aware of this possibility and b) suggest that (as it's such a small change) this is done for the default search tabs for XenForo 1.2 and the search tabs for the next Resource Manager release.

The Search Everything tab should remain as it is.
