Advanced Search with an Option to Filter Search
Advanced Search with an Option to Filter Search based on the Sections and Categories i.e. search in a particular section and or category or whole site. Search in Documents etc. This advancement will make Joomla based sites more powerful and user friendly.
It should also be possible to create filters (or index) based on the status of the article (published, unpublished, archived, all).

an essential implementation!
Here is what we have as a BOSCAR:
We currently have an option to search with basic site search which allows you to filter search based on some generic options which are not so advanced.
We need a site search that should allow users to pick a list of:
that should can be included/excluded from the filters to search from.
Implement the Objective outlined above with more details.
We are waiting for the Joomla Team to help us get this done.
We do not have any actions applied as of now.
None as of now.
Guys, how about creating a BOSCAR for this one.
Let me work on that and I shall write back with the BOSCAR.

This is indeed one of the most awaited feature in Joomla.
This will without a doubt increase the CMS demand and will be one of the most thrilling application. If we check under PhpBB they have this really cool advance search, I am sure Joomla will also have this one, since this is really needed to enhance the current default search.
I totally agree with Syed. Advanced search feature can save lots of time as well.
This sounds really a good addition.
Additionally we can have a filter ribbon in the search results just like Joomla.org search results which will allow users to filter search based on categories.
can't express how much we need it.
This truly will be a great add.
Advance search sounds great it would be better if you can improve it further by being able to search articles by date!!!
I've looked every where no one has this done
I am sure people in the community is looking at this idea.
Everyone, please provide your inputs.
We really need this in the default Joomla and not as a Module/Component.
I think this kind of search functionality will be a great value add. Please we need something like this!!!!!!!
Looking forward to have this noticed and get implemented.
Joomla is without a doubt THE Most Powerful CMS Tool.
If the search is enhanced to make it more customizable, it will have a very high impact to make any website awesome to super-awesome.
Should Be a great search system on Joomla !! I am with you to do this , bcz the search now is so poor
