Hello,

What exactly do you mean 'it doesn't work'? Can you perform a search? What is the url to your forum? May you post a screenshot of the issue?

Information is crucial to us helping you resolve your issue as fast and effeciently as possible, so when you make a new support topic, try to include as much detailed information about your problem as possible.

-Brandon

topics is ok- it works ... (but it doesnt give so much results as it schould).
but to find the requested key word in a post- thats the problem.

So, I want to find every post from those 55 338 posts where the discussions were about WORK.

РАБОТА (cyrilic BG). Try to find it...in the posts

I did a search with the word you asked and found it to be working just how it was meant to

The normal search engine only looks for keywords in topic titles. Also you can not search for words less then 4 characters long.

To search in posts/messages, you have to use hashtags and click the tags box in the search box.


When your topic has been solved, ensure you mark the topic solved.

//phpBB3 with search
$("div#search-box").html("<div id='my_gs'><gcse:search></gcse:search></div>");
}else{
if($("div#page-body").length){
//phpbb2, phpBB3 no search engine and punBB
$("<div id='my_gs'><gcse:search></gcse:search></div>").insertBefore("div#page-body");
}else{
//Invision
$("<div id='my_gs'><gcse:search></gcse:search></div>").insertAfter("div#submenu");
}
}

var gcse = document.createElement('script');
gcse.type = 'text/javascript';
gcse.async = true;
gcse.src = (document.location.protocol == 'https:' ? 'https:' : 'http:') +
