Solved Forumotion search bar

Post by Guardian-Angel on Sat 8 Apr - 16:49

Hello

When I enter words to search in the Forumotion search bar, top left hand of the page, I have to hit enter rather than clicking the search icon. When I enter my words and click the search icon, nothing happens.

I can click the search icon in this forum, but can't do it on my own forum.

Thanks for any help.

Hello have you made lots of change to your Templates & JavaScript ?

If YES My Advice is to turn them all off and then see if you still have the problem.

I have not made any changes in a long time. I never noticed it until a member brought it to my attention. I never use that search function, I use the search under the banner.

On my forums, clicking the search icon in toolbar does not work either.

Hey,

By default the Forumotion Toolbar's search button does not perform a search when clicked ; it instead focuses the textarea. Back when I was working on the support forum's theme I added a script which changes the functionality of the toolbar's search bar, which is why it performs a search when you click the search button here. I've written a similar plugin for Forumactif Edge that can be used on any forum though. Go to Admin Panel > Modules > JS codes management > Create a new script

Placement : In all the pages
Code:
$(function(){
  $(function() {
    var fa_magnifier = document.getElementById('fa_magnifier');

    if (fa_magnifier) {
      fa_magnifier.onclick = function() {
        this.parentNode.submit();
      };
    }
  });
});
The script should attach an event handler to the search button, so that it submits a search when you click it.

Sorry for the double post, one more question. Am I correct in saying that search tool bar only searches topic titles?

By default, the search engine searches for keywords in topic's titles.

If you use the hashtag system, you can search for hashtags (keywords) in posts by checking the tags box in the search pop-up or page.
