You mean the part after I do my search where it says:
Refine results for foo: Guide Tickets Changesets Ports Wiki
Honestly I hadn't seen that until now. It works fine when I click
Still I'd rather not search over everything, then have to refine my
search. I want the right search from the beginning. I guess I can
type "more:guide" into the search box. It would be easier if there
were a drop-down menu where I could select how I want to refine the
search right at the beginning.
