Filter Searches Answered

There needs to be filters after a search so that people can narrow what they're looking for to relevant threads.  i.e., if I'm looking for something that would most likely be in wood working, than I should be able to filter out anything that involves food.  Categories should be similar to those found in explore.  Allowing additional tags would further help this experience.

Absolutely agreed. It has reached the point where I'm put off using instructables because I can't filter out "Knex" "Lego" or "Cardboard" . Some searches are just swamped out with these. Nothing wrong with those items for those of the age group or otherwise interested but if it isn't what you want... Usually a minus symbol before the word will do it, but not here. Just some simple switches would be great.
