Description

At first and again Congrats for bbPress 2.3 :)

A nice feature for bbPress 2.4, Is to have an Advanced Search Page which let the user search by:

1- Post Type )Forum,Topic,Reply).
2- Forum ID/s (Search in specific forums)
3- Author ID/s (Search for posts specific by authors)
4- Search In Subforums (True or False)
5- Topic Tags
6- Order Results by (Data|Author|Title...etc)
...etc

It's an "advanced page" so more options, more better :)

I don't agree that more options are better here, even though it is the typical forum convention. I'd rather see a smarter search than a more complex filtering mechanism.

Probably could be a nice plugin to start, and if it's popular we reevaluate then.

Sure bbPress should be simple as possible, but at least can we add the page-template and minimal options like the "Forums" and "Post Type"?

and about "smarter search" can you give some keywords?
