    Is there anyway to have "Search this Forum Only" unchecked by default when initiating a search? Whenever I've used search I have never wanted that option. I may want to only search the thread I'm reading, but I have never wanted only search the specific forum I'm in.

    If you want to search site-wide, initiate the search from the main page. If you start from within a forum, it will default to that forum.

    Can the default be changed?

    No, it's by design.

    Poor design IMO. Thanks for the response.

    (And for the record I did know how to search all the forums elsewhere, etc. It just seemed a nuisance as opposed to what I would consider the natural work flow.)
