Suggestions for the "Quick search" add-on

Hi,

I'm unsure if it's just me, but the column "Thread starter" is empty if the search is performed from the forum index.

What I wanted to suggest is having the possibility to remove the style="width:300px" or have a checkbox to toggle it. I personally find it to look nicer if the width is set to 100% by default, but this way each of us can set his preferences, without being forced to have a static width (300px) or a responsive-only search bar.

Also, I would appreciate to have a setting to define the time-span to search a thread for. I think I read that this add-on searches only for "new" threads, what about having the possibility to define how exactly "new" would count threads? (older than X days)

Last but not least, I'm not sure if it's intentional, but quick search in threads only searches for the thread itself, what I would like is to have it behave as usual, making people look for threads, and not for posts inside that given thread.

Thanks for reading.

Can I get a link to your forum to see the issue.

It's important to keep the quick search simple, so I won't be adding such features.

I think changing the quick search to search for thread titles would be more useful, often I was expecting that behavior only to find it was searching for message content within the thread.
