Forum search does not work...

4 years ago
Hi,

Searching the forum just does not seem to work properly.

As an example, I tried searching "All Forums" for "localhost images" to troubleshoot a problem, no results were found. Yet, this thread exists about my exact problem. With a title like "Homepage images randomly referencing localhost on a live server", I really expected it to come up as both search terms are in the title.

Searching for "localhost" or "images" yield results, but too many to be useful. Searching for the exact title also works, but that not the point of a search tool.

Can this be fixed?

Thanks,

dstj.

Hi,

Thanks a lot. This is a known limitation of "exact match". Please let quote Eduardo:

If when doing advanced search you cannot find what you need, then try a Google search focused into nopCommerce site: [your search words site:nopcommerce.com]

Thanks for the information.

Might I suggest changing this welcome text to include that information:

It would be helpful.
