I was trying to find the old hoopla idea threads, but even when I only check "new swap theme ideas", it still searches all boards. The search isn't very clever as it is, so without the board selection it's almost unusable Sad

I assume you're going from "Advanced search" and not from the search in the sidebar? 

I just tried it from Advanced search and you're right, it is wonky! Ugh. I'll look into it more. Sorry about this!

It seems that all of the swap boards have that problem no matter how you search! BOO!! I'm putting it in to IT right now!

The board selection works now, but now when I press enter with the search field focused (advanced search) it for some reason adds a comma and a space to my search parameters, without activating the search like regular search engines... Smiley

When I write hoopla in the simple search and press enter, it turns into "hoopla, hoopla, ", and does not activate search. It chooses top suggestion without me having selected it. So if I for example write "swap" and press enter, it fills in "swap_faq, swap_faq, " and does not activate search.

Yea, it seems to be suggesting things that are tags, but that's causing some problems. I've brought it up to IT!  Smiley
