Additional, Administrator-defined, Optionally-searchable Content Types
Think it would be quite useful to have the ability to (optionally) define additional "Content Types", i.e., types other than the default set already provided (Page contents, Blogs, Forums, Events, & Public Member profiles).
This capability would add an important, new dimension to the site wide Search Gadget, and would provide a user-configurable means to manage the scope of a user's search capability, by role!
1. Any number of additional (optionally-defined) content types can be established by a site administrator
2. These optionally-defined content types can be administrator-selected for inclusion/exclusion: (a) By role and (b) In the site search Gadget’s defaults
3. The user would be able to optionally select/exclude the optional content types (to which they are entitled) in their search results, as they currently can for the currently configured content types
4. The additional content type attribute would be assigned/modified by the content creator/owner (or other authorized user) using the standard page editor.
