More prominent search field
I would absolutely love it if there was an option to make search in the forum a more prominent feature.
See our Help Center here for an example:
Essentially, I'd love it if there was a search bar in the top of the category list and of topic lists that didn't require a click to reveal a popup, but rather was always visible.
Our forum now has 5,000 pages so it would make sense to make it easier for users to find existing content. I believe a prominent search feature would be key to fix that.
Ideally, it should be a fairly trivial fix - potentially it can be a flag in the UI settings so others can keep the feature as it is today.

Now this has been implemented. Will upgrade Prod soon or tomorrow
(You'll see a search field, on the forum homepage here: /forum/ )
Ok :- ) I wonder if the search box by default should search only in any category selected below (rather than in the whole forum), if one has selected a category below.
Maybe, if one was in a specific category, there could be a checkbox below the search query field:
[x] Search only in the current category, i.e. The Current Cat Name
— then, one would/could understand how it worked, and un-tick, to search everywhere.
(But if no category had been selected, the checkbox wouldn't appear)
