    Suggestion for search improvement

    Hello WHT!

    I have a simple suggestion that I wanted to throw out on the table. If you implement this into a premium account then you've instantly convinced me to upgrade.

    Would it be possible to adjust the quick search function to EXCLUDE the advertising forums - or make this a configurable option. It shouldn't be to hard to hack something like that together.

    My problem is that when I search for common words or phrases, a large number of the results are from the advertising forums, which contain the word but not the information I'm searching for. I then must do the advanced search to filter out these forums which takes more time.

    A minor pet peeve. Keep up the great work!

    This is already possible. In the "Search in Forum(s)" select only the Web Hosting Main Forums and you are set. Oh and make sure the "Also search in child forums" checkbox is checked.

    But that requires me clicking the "Search Forums" button first and then doing that each and every time, correct? To clarify, I was speaking of the quick search functionality.
