Search by journal type
Short, concise description of the idea
It should be possible to specify the type of journal you want from the search page
Full description of the idea
In addition to the existing options on the directory search page, it should be possible to specify the journal type: users, communities or both. Currently both are returned from the main directory search page (http://www.livejournal.com/directorysearch.bml), and the community search page (http://www.livejournal.com/community/search.bml) doesn't seem to work at all. Finding a community for a popular interest is currently difficult because an interest search in this case simply tells you there are too many matches to display.
