Condense all search options on site scheme pages into one

Title
Condense all search options on site scheme pages into one

Short, concise description of the idea
On site scheme pages, replace the current search interface of a text box and drop down menu with a single text box, and provide search results for all areas.

Full description of the idea
The current search interface is a pain. Let's say I want to search for suggestions. First I have to enter suggestions in the text box, then I have to select "site & user" from the dropdown, and then hit go. Then I get brought to another page that lists possible pages I might be interested in. What I'm proposing is thatthe dropdown be removed so all I have to do is search for suggestions and hit return/click go. This could then bring up a page of everything I might have been searching for: suggestions, users interested in suggestions, the suggestions area, the FAQ about suggestions, a user with the AIM username "suggestions" and so on.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Cleaner, simpler user-interface.
  • Simpler to search.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Not as obvious what criteria can be searched on.
  • Slightly more awkward to search for interests.
