Anonymous search returns no results.

Post by ckendall » Thu Feb 18, 2010 2:46 pm

Hi, we're working on integrating phpBB with our intranet. As part of this effort we would like to allow anonymous searches to return results, even from forums the 'Anonymous' has been given access to. I have checked out the Search Settings in the ACP and our settings seem to be as relaxed as possible. But when we're not logged in, searches return no (0) results.

Can someone explain how we can make anonymous searches return results?

Have you given your Guest group permissions to search in the forums it can see?

Be default the "Read Only" Forum Permission role does have the "Can search the forum" permission set to Yes.
