    This quesion was raised by someone who was confused, sort of a useability issue.

    Why the search link in the main navigation as well as the box on the right? For the first time visitor to a site, they may be confused about that and whether they are the same or different.

    One is quick search, one is advanced.

    But once you click "more" the one on the right seems identical. My question was not really "what's the difference" but more to point out that it is confusing for first time users. Eventually you find out the do the same thing, just that one of them shows less to begin with.

    Do you see what I mean?

    I removed the search link in the main navigation on my forum.
