Post by WickedDreamer333 on April 13th 2016, 8:08 pm

How come we cannot use the search function to search for a keyword on posts?

I read thru old posts on the subject, and if I understood it correctly, the forum search feature only searches for a keyword in the topic not the posts???? This seems shortsighted if that's the case. Is there a way to upgrade?

Hello,

The search bar generally searches for keywords in topic titles, in some cases, if you are doing an advanced search, the searchbar might also pick up words in posts within topics as well, but the primary focus is on topic titles.

I do not believe there is a way to change this via the default options, as this is a serverside based thing and only if FM decides to make a change to this feature for ALL forums can this be changed.

If you use the hashtag system, you can check the tag box in the search box.
