Solved Description field doesn't show in Advanced Search

Post by Prior Incantato on September 21st 2012, 1:15 pm

I apologize if this issue and question has been brought up before; I have tried searching the whole forum for topic that covers the same problem, but I haven't been successful. And I can't solve it on my own.


So, with my Invision board (+here) I have problems with the description field not showing up in Advanced Search ('View posts since last visit' and 'Today's active topics'). Seeing the board is used for RPG it would be most beneficial if the description field is shown. Can anything be done with this problem?


To illustrate the problem perhaps more clearly,


^ the description field.


^ the description field is shown in all forums.


^ the description field isn't shown in Advanced Search.


Can anybody please help me? I would be really thankful!

I believe the search bar ONLY searches for NAMES of topics, not their descriptions, considering it puts them on a list once hit 'Search'. If you haven't noticed, the same occurs on these forums as well.

On this forum there isn't the option of a description field? I simply assumed it would be possible if changing some settings, seeing there is such a field to fill out.

That's what I'm saying. I doubt you can add any description field. I might be wrong, however I doubt. Wink
