3 search fields

Is there a way to use all three search fields(category, advanced, and story text) at once, and if not, could there be?

The quick search is for title, not story text. The only place you can do a search on story text within the site is using the Advanced search.

It's difficult, but not impossible to do. We have two, incompatible, indexing engines in use. The one that handles the search inside the story's text can't be made to handle the meta-data search. So in order to accomplish what you're suggesting we have to create a system that can combine separate results from separate engines to give a coherent answer/listing.

How about you give me an example of what you want to accomplish, and I'll see if I can come up with what you need to do.
