Add a Search Widget to Your bbPress Forum
An active forum demands decent search capabilities. The new bbPress Search Widget plugin gives your forum users the opportunity to search forum/forums, topic/topics and reply/replies and is limited to forum content only.
Drop it into any widget area and you’ll have a search box that works in a way that’s similar to the regular WordPress search widget.
Nearly every WordPress site running the bbPress 2.0 plugin could benefit from adding a search widget. When users can find topics they’re interested in, they’re much more likely to participate. Download the bbPress Search Widget plugin for free from the WordPress repository.
