Can I set the "Search current category" checkbox to checked by default?


(George Pickett) #1

I have a discourse discussion board where users come from different places and have no real reason to look at other categories of the forum. Therefore, it would make sense that by default, the search feature should restrict searches to the category they’re currently browsing.

Is there a way to make this checkbox checked by default?

Here’s the button I’m referring to: 2016-12-12_1553

Thanks!

George

We do not support this yet, but I’m all for it. I think this would be a good setting for Meta as well, as we often point people directly to places like our #howto category.

It’s also much easier to notice that “Search this topic” actually exists when it starts off checked.

Being able to select this default on a per-category basis could also be very useful.
