Searching on selected forums

Our search tool currently allows searching on one or all forums. There are several times (usually when I check for cross-posting) that I want to scan some, but not all 49 forums.
Who else needs a way to select the forums that are to be searched?
I didn't search to see if this topic has a history; you can probably guess why.

That would be a nice feature. I know that I rarely need to seach MD, Jobs, Linux, etc for questions that I like to search on.
Good idea!!

It figures; I want to make a helpful suggestion, I have to register. To register, I have to fill out a form. To validate the form, I have to respond to an email confirmation. To respond, I have to wait for the mail. THEN, and only then, may I offer my life-giving suggestion to InfoPop.
Cindy, I hope you get reincarnated as a civil servant.

Just in time, I was dying for this feature.

Well, ok then, Pauline, back me up! I posted my suggestion on InfoPop. Fight the power with me! Of course, to do that, you'll have to register, fill out a form, wait for a confirmation, remember this link...
