Hi,

In the Search Combo box, why don't we add an other capability to search " ALL THE FORUMS"?

I know it would return many hits, but that does help some times, like for example I'm looking in for say Building an eCommerce site...I can do a search in all forums at once by saying "eCommerce Site", instead of looking into each of the forums like JSP, EJB, Webservices, Testing, Application Servers etc., And based on the search topics returned, I can look into each of these topics...

I guess, this may not be a very good example, but something on these lines...

This kind of search would be really helpful...

Any concerns/thoughts?

Sri

This question has been asked over and over and over and over....Well, you get the idea. In fact, someone asked this very same question about 10 threads before this one. Did you glance at any other posts?

Check out our FAQ as to the reason we don't allow site wide searching.

I find it amusing that people who are asking for the "search all forums" feature don't seem to even use the "search one forum" feature before asking this question.

This is not a flame on anybody... I just see the irony and wanted to point it out.
