Is it possible to make search context-sensitive?
That's what I mean:
  • when I click "Search" on forum main page, I become standart search page;
  • when I click "Search" inside a forum "X", then "X" is selected on the list "Search in Forum";
  • when I click "Search" inside a topic, then it will be searched in this topic.

Not really no, you'd really need a fairly complex search mechanism for that. External search tools work best for those instances.

If you want contextual search use search libraries designed for such a purpose to provide this functionality. It is too complex and cumbersome, not to mention slow to integrate into the forum by default. Plus why re-invent the wheel where a good one already exists.

Zitat:

  • when I click "Search" on forum main page, I become standart search page;
  • when I click "Search" inside a forum "X", then "X" is selected on the list "Search in Forum";
  • when I click "Search" inside a topic, then it will be searched in this topic.


I think the first two things shouldn't be that complex. I have tried to make a patch that does the necessary changes in usercp.tmpl. What do you think about it?

Something similar to #1 was added to CVS.
