In the attached image, you'll see that in order to provide users with the option of searching either the site (pages and posts) OR the bbPress forums, I have to use two widgets - it's an unfortunate waste of sidebar space and potentially confusing to users.
I've tested and the standard WordPress search widget does not return results from the bbPress forums.
I've always investigated a number of search plugins, and I do use the Advanced Post Search widget, but I can't determine a method to make it provide the option of searching Pages/Posts or bbPress forums.
Can you help me determine a method to consolidate site page/post searches and bbPress forum searches in a single widget? It would be great if the user had the option of typing in their keywords, then selecting whether to search pages/posts or forums (or perhaps even both but that wouldn't be required).
Thank you for any help or insight!
