I suggest this because that's the way people will also probably be used to doing it from google (Including me). Might avoid an annoying pitfall.
Mentioned that to Mike as he is the guy doing most of the server configs (I'm just learning things) and he is going to brainstorm it. There is a couple different ways to do it but want to pick which could be the cleanest and most efficient for our usage. Great idea though! I like titlefoo AND bar) better than title:foo title:bar

We do return the authors in that thread but will need to make it search for that... will look into this.

Think I will take a stab at doing this today.

Took me a bit to find it. I imagine when you roll it out to all users, you'll have it on every forum page.
Thought I mentioned that above, guess I got sidetracked. The issue with having it on all the forum pages is when you drill into one where you have threads, there is the button to post a new thread so will have to get with our web design team to see where they would want to move that button, I'd want the search field in the same place everywhere.

That should work now actually.
