Search broken

I don't think I have ever used it so can't be certain it ever worked for us.

When I enter a search it just jumps back to our default start page rather than searching the forum.

I am using Vantage as the theme.

Must be n your end, I have the most recent update and it works fine on my forum.  Maybe Thomas will be able to fix your issue.

What SEO plugins?

Just the standard Wordpress search widget. I don't have any additional search plugins.

It would be handy for me to have one search that could look at pages, posts and forum entries as I may have to stop using the forum if users can't find content from a single search box.

Forum has a handy search.

It is logical to have two search site and forum

Only the forum search doesn't work, jumps back to front page of site.

And for my clients they just want one search for all.

 

Installed Yoast SEO plugin?

Yoast didn't help as site is intranet.

However, Relevanssi - A Better Search did seem to do the trick. It is picking up words from the Asgaros forum in the standard WP search now. There was an option to index asgarosforum-category  which seems to have worked.

 

 

Hello alex,

problems like this usually happens because of an incompatibility with one of your other plugins or themes which is hard to fix. For example they are registering some query-vars which are used inside the forum plugin.

I first planned to include the forum search inside the default WordPress search. But it would mix forum posts and normal pages inside the search results. And because you usually have more posts than pages, you normal site content would be unfindable. Thats why I decided to split it.

The search is by the way working for me with the Vantage theme.

If you want to support the development of Asgaros Forum, you can leave a good review or donate. Thank you very much!

Looking for the same, I'd like forum post to show up in the sitewide search. Installed Relevanssi - A Better Search with stock WordPress and it doesn't appear to work anymore. Open to suggestions. Would this be possible if I try to hire a developer to produce some customizations?
