319 - Search should search the entire site/all games if it doesn't find a match in the current game/section

What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?

I was searching for smariot, and when I didn't find him, I tried searching for QuestHelper (this from the "Search:" input box at the right of the nav bar).  Only after it didn't find anything, did I realize I was in the Age of Conan section, clicked the CurseForge banner image to return to the true top-top of the site, and THEN search found smariot and QuestHelper.

If Search doesn't find something within the current section/game (if it's continued to be limited to a section), it should expand the search to the entire site/all games - or at least offer a "Hey, I didn't find anything within <section/game>, would you like to search all of CurseForge?" option.

Please provide any additional information below.
