The "search forums" field in the top right of the page currently searches all the forums. It would seem more logical for it to only search forums at the level that the user is currently browsing.

Alternatively add a "search this forum" field.

Yes, it needs to be able to do both.

Click on the search icon (magnifying glass) without filling in any search term. You will get an error message, but you will also get a page where you can select where to search (by clicking on the More Options link under the search text field).

Do you think we could, maybe, improve on that search UI design a bit?
Pretty please?

They claim it is updated in the next production release (though I don't have a date for it making it to our site yet).

>With Jive SBS, the quick search available in the user bar has an option that allows the user to limit the quick search results based upon the container being viewed within the context of the current page. So if looking at Space A, if you type some text in the quick search, there is now a link at the top of the results that can be used to limit the results to only Space A. The same holds true when viewing the profile of a particular user - there is a link at the top of the quick search results allowing the user to limit results to only those by the current user being viewed.

>Also, on the search page in Jive SBS, the more options sections has been completely redone. It now includes a text field into which you can type the name of a container that you want to limit results to rather than having the select list box from previous versions.

Then deselect items you don't wish to search, scroll through a huge list to find the forum to search...

...and that's why a "search this forum" option is needed on the front page - I rest my case!

Spaces? Type the name of a container? I predict bafflement at the unfamiliar terminology.

I give up. I will come back and search for the item I was looking for later when I recover. Hopefully, adobe will bring back the ability to search within the current forum.
