I have a suggestion regarding search features.

1. Could you please remove replies' title so that it can not be searched by title?

2. Could you divide "search entire post" into "search in topic" and "search in replies"

Replies does not matter it's title starting "RE:", it does matter only its body content.

So it would be better divide by search topic's body and search replies' body so that users can filter threads with ease.

Therefore it makes sense "search by title = search by topic's title" as removing replies title.

Thank you.

Thank you for your solution.

I think there's a misunderstanding regarding replies title.

The attached is the search result when I did here.

Due to the replies' same title starting "RE:", unusable data are shown in search result with the same topic.

Like other forums, I think replies don't need their title. 

How about removing replies' title??

I hope you understand this situation.

Thank you 😀

@yahoyaho

It's clear what you are asking for. The search process goes in posts table, so we can't remove it because the topic title is the title of the first topic post. If we remove it the topic title will be removed from search result too. Currently, it returns result with relevancy priority. Yes it may find a search word in a post title but it'll have less priority that the post which have the search word in post content too.

Anyway, the forum search is going to be totally improved soon. So this issue might be also solved in future middle or major version.

Thank you, Mr, @robert

I think reply's title is not that important because it is same as the first post's title.

Searching from reply's body is enough, not their title.

Searching priority I think is

 1) First topic's title

 2) First topic's body and reply's body

I'm looking forward to improved search features you mention.

Thank you for your supports always.

Best regards,

David
