Re: Sitewide search
i have an idea that i want you to comment on. please respond.
modify searchform.php with the custom search code (sorry but i’m referring to Google here just for site wide search) having only single box+button only, i.e no dropdown menu.
modify search.php with the custom search result code, putting the results from the members, blogs, forums and groups search in their respective tabs with ajax.
This way user skips a step and also gets a better looking simple search box.
This shall do the trick like it did in WP and WPMU. Later on someone clever (like you and not me) could probably put a plugin to do that.
