    First I want to say I really like kendo so far in my testing, great job!
    I couldn't find a more appropriate place to post this so here goes.

    Due to the newness of kendo, I am finding myself searching your forums for people with similar problems often.
    Is it just me or is it very difficult to navigate?

    There is a search option top of page but it searches every category of every forum, blog, doc and video... kind of hard to sift through unless I am missing some kind of option to narrow it down... I see the option to narrow to forums only but you still get 6 per page of tons and tons of matches.

    Go into the grid forum and search for "filters" and you get    1 – 6 of 421 results    basically at that point I say forget it :).  I would suggest maybe consider tags or groups, like if I posted about grid filters, I would tag it about "filters", maybe a multiple choice of available topics from the api to choose from?? That way you click on forums>grid>filters and you get probably 25 results not 421... just offering feedback and suggestions.

    Seems like every other dev package you guys offer like wpf and asp.net and others have separated searchable documentation and forums but kendo is completely different and more difficult and lacking documentation imho?

    +10, searching here is unusable

    Also the breadcrumbs are borked when you're browsing, you can't jump back to the forum you opened the thread in, you can only go back to http://www.kendoui.com/forums.aspx

    I am also looking for a forum specific search. It would be nice to have an advanced Search for the forums that had checkboxes for answered question, not-answered, and ones with JsFiddle examples.
