Website maker people, please don’t do the thing pictured below.

There’s two search fields. This completely defies the point of a search box. You type something in the search box because you don’t have any way to locate it. Why would you know how to locate it as a sub-search in either box? Just make one box, do both searches automatically and present the user with two categories of results, preferably in one scrollable list.

And upon further analysis, the search box to the left isn’t a search box at all, it’s a page chooser box. This is bad, very bad.
At least they had the decency to provide prototype text in the boxes.
