Please Make the Advanced Search Options More Available
I had heard rumors that the reason to use tags on posts was because tags were searchable. However, I could not find any way to do this until someone pointed out that you can search by tags and by a number of other criteria only after doing a search.
The various search bars on the site are just simple searches like this:
It is only after you use one of these that you come to the real Search page
Where you have to option using the grey arrow to open more search criteria:
Would it be possible to always have the grey arrow available or some way, such as a box in the side navigator bar, to go directly to the Search page? It seems a little counterintuitive to only be able to do a real search after searching.
So people clearly see the search options. I think it would be best to have the full search screen open when coming to the Search page rather than hiding it under the grey arrow
