Implemented [Suggestion] Dropdown menu on search bar

Would it be possible to have a drop down menu on the search bar with various options depending on where you are in the forum hierarchy.

Eg: If you were viewing a topic, the options could be:
"search this topic / thread"
"search this board"
"search this category"
"search the entire site"

If you were viewing a board, it would be:
"search this board"
"search this category"
"search the entire site"

And so on..

I see there's already a "Search this forum" button next to "Mark this forum read" but I feel it's rather oddly placed. With a drop down menu in the main search bar, it'd remove some redundancy.

I would just have those 2 be the default conditions when in those areas.

Then when viewing specific forum, have it default to "search this forum".

Then the other options can show up under advanced search options.

I really like the idea!

^ Hm, that's a good idea too. Personally I'd rather the "Posted by Member" and "Newer Than" options be on the advanced search page.

Guys, if you support the idea, please like the post. This is outlined clearly in Mike's thread, stickied in this forum.
