Could '"Using Moodle" advanced search' be linked to the forums too?
Group Particularly helpful Moodlers
Right now the '"Using Moodle" advanced search' https://moodle.org/mod/forum/search.php?search=&id=5 is linked to the main page of "Using Moodle" https://moodle.org/course/view.php?id=5 (just below the "Search in forums" field). But not available from within the individual forums.

How about adding that link to the forum pages too?

BTW, why is it "Search in (all) forums" within individual forums? I would have expected a "Search in _this_ forum"!

Hi Visvanath,

I agree that it would be good to have a link to the advanced search within individual forums, also a 'Search in this forum' option. For a long time now there has been talk of moving to ForumNG, and whilst this possibility remains, nobody is inclined to make improvements to the standard forum module.

However, as a temporary measure, many forums now include a link to the advanced search on the new discussion topic page.
