Setting up per-forum search on Drupal 6

  • Install advanced_forum 6.x-2.x and nodecomment 6.x-2.x.
  • Enable advanced_comment, nodecomment and core search module. (nodecomment might take a few minutes to be enabled, depending on the number of nodes on your site. You might also have an out of memory error while enabling the module, just ignore it).
  • Run cron on your site
  • If you have a non-English site, go to admin/build/translate/search, and search for the term "Search", and translate "Search topic" and "Search forum" to your language. Do the same for the string "You may use the word and to require"
  • Now, when you visit a forum or topic, you will see a Search box.
