    Description:
    Is it feasible to add a third search box in the advanced search tab?
    The form is found in 'quick-1-body-advanced' (relevant code below).
    I'm wondering if the backend script could handle a third term?
    Would we also need to define a new set of values?

    </tr>
    </table>
    </fieldset>
    </div>

    Resolution:
    We currently do not support a third search box because only a small percentage of the CKB resources support three search terms.
    If this percentage increases, it is likely that including a third box would be revisited.
