Advanced search goes away if "search the...category" is checked

When I click on the magnifying glass search icon to bring up the search bar, I am only able to see the options button to open up an advanced search if the box “Search the … category” is not checked.

I believe you should still be able to do an advanced search even if the “search in category” box is checked, because you may want to add other elements to your search beyond (but including) searching in the category.

It’s also confusing, because the box is automatically checked if you hit the search icon from a category home page–so, if you hit the search icon from a category home page, the ability to do advanced search is hidden by default.

If you hit the search icon from a topic, selecting “search in this topic” will similarly hide the ability to do an advanced search.

Can we make it so that the “options” button appears whether or not the “search in…” box is checked?
