More prominent search field

    I would absolutely love it if there was an option to make search in the forum a more prominent feature.

    See our Help Center here for an example:

    Essentially, I'd love it if there was a search bar in the top of the category list and of topic lists that didn't require a click to reveal a popup, but rather was always visible.

    Our forum now has 5,000 pages so it would make sense to make it easier for users to find existing content. I believe a prominent search feature would be key to fix that.
    Ideally, it should be a fairly trivial fix - potentially it can be a flag in the UI settings so others can keep the feature as it is today.

    1. Maybe this can indeed be a quick fix (or somewhat quick). I can have a look

      I think it's a good thing to have and could be nice to enable here at Ty .io too I suspect.

      Nice looking example, thanks for the link.

        (Sorry for the delay. I've been improving session management in Talkyard. Now that's mostly done, still need to code review (not yet deployed), and some other things)

          Now started working with this — will be fixed at the end of next week (unless something unplanned comes up in between).
