    It is common and convenient in other BBS software to be able to search threads withing a sub forum only. In Surfaceforums I only see the option atop "Search Forums" then I have to drill down and slect the forum of interest then compose my search.

    Am I missing something here, or is there no way to initiate and compose a search from Directly within a sub forum without having to create the filter manually?

    I am daft. YES it is.

    Until now I had never even noticed the "staring in my face" SEARCH window up top in the RH side of the main Surface Forums Banner. Had always been looking for a "search this forum" below all the ads within each forum itself ala vBulletin. Thanks.
