Search options

Postby Allonii » Sun Sep 11, 2011 1:31 pm


Since the upgrade to this new forum I'm getting really tired of the search results showing message texts when I search for something. Now the old wxWidgets forum did not do this but always showed the topics.

Is there a way to tell the search filter to always show topics when I search for something? It is annoying always have to choose Advanced search and set it from there.

It makes sense to me that it shows an excerpt of the post body when the default search does in fact returns results with matches in the body text as well as the titles, so I'd rather not change the default.

If there was a way to allow users to save default search options, I would be happy to enable it, but I'm not currently seeing anything that allows that.
