Thanks, have you thought about releasing one product which has this and your other tag search one? and then with options to enable or disable them. and then as time goes on, just building on from the one product, would be easier for me to install one product ^^ I like them both,

Thanks.

Maybe add 'search members' and 'search titles only' tickbox as well.

Anything is possible, but with my v3.7.x releases I am releasing stuff at the moment that is unique to v3.7.x and not available in v3.6.x (a lot of v3.6.x hacks work fine in v3.7.x, so have not bothered to re-issue the hacks), so I may well get around to doing this at some point.

ok I loaded it and did the install but I don't see the search function being added to my search link.

Is there something that needs to be done for different templates?

Thanks

Are you installing this on a fresh install or an upgraded forum?

If it is a fresh install, it should just work once you have entered the usergroups that you want to see the link.

If you have upgraded your forum to v3.7.0 Beta 2 or 3, have you reverted your templates and then re-applied your template changes? As it is looking for a template hook specific to v3.7.0 and not reverting your templates could be the cause of the issue.

It would be great if there was a way to automatically allow all usergroups to use the search. I have a ton of usergroups and constantly make new ones and delete old ones. This is just a hassle.

Good idea :)

I will add that into the next version, and I will probably add it into quite a few of my other hacks as well.

The screenshots show what it is. It is just a link to social groups on the Navbar Search drop down list (not shown as a default option in vBulletin), nothing more, nothing less.
