There is any way to search easy just in forum area. I will like to search just in LPC17xx forum and to chose the way the keywords are used: view results that contain all keywords, or ignore results that contain one keyword etc.

Content originally posted in LPCWare by jdurand on Tue Oct 16 17:34:18 MST 2012 The problem is the forum is running under Drupal software which is aimed for web page handling, the forum feature is a minor aspect of it and so doesn't have as many features as you might expect if you are used to regular forums running under phpBB or something.
I run a phpBB forum mainly for our customers (most threads are hidden to the general public), all sorts of nice features but it doesn't do web pages.

I'd like, though, to have a search-box, which is dedicated to the forum only. This is useful, when you have a problem, and you want to see if someone else already asked for help, so the forum is not flooded with a lot of the same questions.
I did find out that after you have made a search, you can click "Advanced Search" and search forum only, but it's well hidden. Instead, I think it would be intuitive to place a forum-search at the bottom of the forum page.
This is an opinion only, but I believe it'll help as the forum grows. Currently it's small, compared to how big it'll become after a while.
