The ability to search for posts exclusively in the base category itself

One is currently unable to use the search feature to look for topics/replies only in the parent/base category. Right now, selecting the base category will also pull up results from all subcategories under said base category. This is really inconvenient for me.

To repeat, I want the ability to search only in the parent category along side the ability to search for all posts under a parent category.

Thank you!

I still wish to have this feature. It would make my experience using this software much better if I could search exclusively in the base category.
