Search in this community needs to have a forum specific option

Sometimes I'm searching for keywords in a specific form (Xamarin.Forms for example), but when I enter those keywords into the search, results from all forms are returned.

Just wondering if this can be fixed?

    @ChaseFlorell‌ Where are you doing the search? Search needs a lot of work.

    If you do it from the forums, I think it only returns forum results. If you do it from the API docs it only searches them (in Google. Why? Looks horrible to do the one search in Google and the rest locally. It looks like a giant Band-Aid on the site. Also, notice you can't change to Android and Mac docs on the left side. Someone fix that please!) If you do the search from here it also appears to search the API, though the results aren't in Google (????).

    Also, in IE 10 the search icon on the forums has most of the letter "S" next to it (presumably from the word "Search"). Don't see it in Firefox.

    I'm searching from the search bar. It lists results from the entire community, and doesn't allow me to narrow it down to sub forums.
