Add a category pull down menu—All [default], followed by all category names—to select a filter for the following search functions:
1. Topics by this author
2. Messages by this author,
3. Show topics that I started
4. Show topics that I participated in

This would greatly cut down inspection of the search results when the category is known. Probably the same filter mechanism used to provide the author (member) search functions could be tweaked to include the category numbers.

He's asking for a way to limit those four functions to a specific forum category, rather than having them apply to all categories.

You're saying you want more than the current simple clicking on the "Forum" link that automatically opens the four search functions you identified in the original post?
