Reply To: Forum Search Not Working

April 30, 2017 at 1:10 pm

The forum search function has become very limited in what it can find. It used to lookup keywords in both threads and the “tags” field. It no longer seems to be using the tags field. I entered SCIg into the tag field on a few posts and have given the site a few weeks to see if it would show in search. The forum search does not find any terms for SCIg and there are numerous tage and threads containing the term.

The forum database acts as a knowledge base and the search is supposed to help participants access that knowledge through keyword searches. Many forum users are creating duplicate threads because existing ones don’t come up in a search. The lack of a proper search function defeats the purpose of the forum which is designed to help people find support.

Would it be possible to restore the search function to work as it has in the past?

Thank you
