Am I not doing something right, or does our search bar search only topic titles and not actual posts? I've tried a few times to search for posts people have made and if I don't know what thread it was made under I can't find it. This might be an issue for new users who are looking for info and the search bar says we've never posted on what they're looking for.

It took me a while to find the answer to your question, and even then I only found it by accident... but I found it!

Rather than use the quick search box on the right side of the page, use the Search "tab" at the top of the page. The tab at the top will give you the option for a regular or an Advanced search, but I found that the regular search seemed to be sufficient for what I needed it to do.




When you have the Search Query box open, if you display the results as Posts, it shows the entire post with the search term in bold. It makes it easy to find what you're looking for.

Hope this helps!

I'd already thought of that, but hadn't gotten into it yet. It might require a coding change of some type which can be a pain. Sad

We'll keep you posted. Smile
