    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.

    Replacing 'Your Account' with a search dropdown would be a great change.

    Seems kind of out of place though

    The your account tab is already the same as the username dropdown on the right.

    I think the search is just fine where it is, but yeah, I agree these options could be added +1

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