Can I search not only in all forums or selected one (as it is now), but also in a few selected forums?

Fraid not, right now you can only do searching by:
1 forum
1 category (and all it's sub-categories)
entire forum.

Yes, I now this. But do you plan to add a possibility to search in few forums in different categories or in a few different categories?
I mean using
<select class="SmallText" name="forum_limiter" size="10" multiple>

instead of
<select class="SmallText" name="forum_limiter">

This won't work, since the value is converted to an integer and an array of values will translate to 0. The conversion of the forum select to a multiple selection field is kinda tricky and will make the search element occupy far more space then it does now. So, I am uncertain about adding this feature at this time.

I think that this would be an useful feature. I understand that the search options would take more space then, but I think there are two ways for solving this problem:
1) Don't display the result together with the search options, show them on a new page.
2) Make it possible to hide the search options (e.g. using Ajax). I think I would prefer this way.

Maybe this oppertunity can also be used to extend the search options: for example a option for sorting the results by forum, user name or number of replies.

It seems that you don't want to implement something like this at the moment. But maybe you can give a comment what you think about suggestions/ideas?

You'll need to modify search.tmpl to change the forum select to a multi-select and then change search.inc.t to accept the limiter as an array. Then you can build a list of forum ids and pass them to IN() statement.

Eh, since I have a very limited knowledge about PHP, I actually just wanted a comment whether you think my suggestions are good and can be implemented in the stock fudforum.

There are no plans to add this to stock FUDforum at this time.
