When I am viewing my profile page on Connect, I often make a search then. The problem is that Search field has two option tabls below and the default one is the "Users" tab. Inactive one is "Entire Site".

I don't know how other users do, but when I'm searching on this page I more than often prefer "Entire Site" option.

I propose to change default search option on My Profile page from "Users" to "Entire Site"

& I must admit that I generally will change my search option to be for the "Entire Site" much like yourself (& even more so if I was within the Users profile 'area' as I'd seldom, if ever,  have the need to search for a specific user)

However, I fully understand the reasoning behind, and support, the current default search parameter - you are in a particular area (e.g. Backup and Recovery>Ideas, Security>Forums etc etc) then it is justifiable to accept that you should be more likely to want to search within the confines of that specific area.

Yes, Andy, functionality and web engine is the same for the whole site. That's why it shows two search options for each specific site area (sub-site option and Entire Site). In this case it is correct to have default search for sub-site instead of Entire Site option. So, you're right.

I just wonder if it is possible to make a small change for My Profile search. Just there.
