Category Search

  [vote for,

The SEARCH function should return category names, as well as idea names and annotations.

For example, lets say I have an idea for a dog collar that tracks your dog. I don't know offhand where the dog categories are. Is there one in products:...? or culture:...? or public:... ? Maybe more than one of those?

So usually, I search for the text "dog collar", and luckily, someone has usually posted a similar idea, so I just piggyback off whatever category he was using.

But it would be better if SEARCH did it for me. Thank you.

       that would be quite handy, I normally search for a keyword I think might share the category of the idea I want to post, but this'd be much easier. (+)

       Click the link I added, then hit Ctrl-F in your browser window. Voila.

       krelnik: I don't think that's what s/he's asking for...

       That does come close, though. (thanks!)

       Wow... Talk about serendipity - this was brought to you by a press of the [random] button right after I annoed on the link.
