Nevermind this topic. Now I see that it’s integrated into the global site search. Just use to having separate searches for forums.

Sorry.

Thank you gfawce1 for that link.
It’s exactly what I was looking for, allowing me to search just in the forums.
This should be added to the site itself.

I like that it searches the entire site. I often find more of a complete answer by getting a wiki page or something in the knowledge base.

It is sort of amusing that the front page of the forums specifically says “We welcome new questions and discussion, but please make sure to do a quick search first to make sure your topic hasn’t already been addressed”, considering you actually have to search for the forum search first to be able to do that effectively!

[edit]
PS: as an example of why it’s not “effective” to use the global search, there are 3 threads about the Realex payment module - none of which are useful to me - but at least I can find them easily with the forum search; using the global search returns 65 results - 5 pages of links!
