I was wondering if there is a way to modify wpForo search widget to allow the user to select Wordpress blogs, posts and comments as part of the search?

At present I have to operate two search tools, one to search wordpress  which I make available via a top nav-bar and the wpForo search widget via the side-bar to search the forum.

Its not a problem just a case of educating my members on which one to use but it would be great if the wpForo one did it all.

I'm sorry but wpForo search doesn't work for Blog posts so there is no option to select them. wpForo search is only designed for forum search. Make a site-wide search tool is already in our to-do list. Once the forum search becomes a site-wide search, it'll have all necessary tools to choose blog category or other blog specific filters.
