I have the following "problem", people are searching from my home page the theme (WP) default search, they don't find anything related (info from posts IN the forums) and leave.
Any ideas how i can solve this ? I mean is there a way for a global search (blog/pages AND forums) somehow ?
I had the same problem and the fix was hiding the theme's search button.
I've added "Forum Search" widget to my main blog page and it works.
The drawback is that I have 2 search widgets - one for the blog and another one for the form, but it does the job.
WP search doesn't have any relation to wpForo Search so they don't find result. You should have two search forms, one for website one for forum. There is no site-wide search yet. I'll update this topic once we take it under consideration.
Is their a sitewide search option yet?
