Mobile Search Broken?

Whenever I search on mobile, selecting subfora to be searched only doesn't work. I get results from all fora, regardless of my filter.

iOS, Safari

What were the two forums you have selected in the first image? We couldn't get this to happen on our end, but may be forum-specific.

Have you made sure to uncheck the search all forums box? I use the Mobile version and recently realized this was why it wasn't searching just what I clicked.

I understand 'Child forum' as a subforum of a given forum and BA doesn't have one. When I uncheck, I get the same results. It is impossible for me only to search the BA forum.

You are certain you unchecked "Search all forums" in the drop down menu? Because it says you still have 2 forums selected. If you're only searching BA, you should only have one forum selected.

Ok, it was this. I have been using mobile search for a while and never encountered this. In fact, it has been working fine until now. Has this been changed? There should be an automated uncheck of 'search all forums' once a subforum is selected. This way I need to click twice.

I'm not sure. It does seem somewhat unintuitive that "Search All" is not deselected when selecting something else. I'll see if tech can fix/improve that.

Thanks, IBJoel, much appreciated.

As an added data point, the same exact thing just confused me on mobile.
