After using the "searching a thread" function you can't do a general search of the site
Search within a thread, I search REI in this Garmin thread
Great we see results from this thread, looks good.
Now I want to search the Deal Forums for say Verizon, this should work, it does say after all "Search in: In Deals Forum...
But no results found, it seems it's stuck searching the thread rather than from the entire deals forum as it indicated in previous step.
I know I can click on the SD logo and do the search from there but it might be confusing if people don't know you have to do that after searching a thread.
