More search options in default drop down of bp search

    Hi, kendyman70 posted this on a WordPress forum and i think, this should be a better place to discuss about his need :

    `BuddyPress has its own search field, which searches Groups, Members, Post, etc. But for my site we have just members, groups, posts.

    Is there a way to add two more search fields or more to the drop down menu of the BuddyPress Search, to include a search function for ‘classified’ and other wp pages.

    This link is somewhat similar to what I want but NOT for ‘activity’ and for other pages at my site.

    I hope it was clear enough. Thanks for the support, I would really appreciate it.

    Sorry i don’t know Classified, maybe it’s this plugin, but as it hasn’t been updated for 2 years..

    So as on twitter i understood that Kendyman70 was looking for a way to add a category search from this box (search box in bp default header), this is what i’ve tested :

    If you knwow ‘classified’ or other way to help, i’m sure Kendyman70 would appreciate 😉
