Help with searchbar

Post by kent_star » Mon Jun 11, 2018 9:13 pm

Hello there.
I use phpBB SiteMaker and Pages to make some sites in my phpbb forum, but my search will not work in there, i cant search after anything.
Anyone who know what it can be?

Yes: the board search only scans posts and the member search scans only users and their profile data. There is nothing that searches i.e. forum titles or PMs, likewise you're unable to find anything on i.e. FAQ.

Go to wherever you downloaded the extension and request what you want (chances are the author has no clue how to implement that).

Are there other ways to make boxes, in a forum so the search box can be used?

Something like this...

That's one major downside of all non-posts: they can neither be searched, nor found. Seriously, consider realizing it thru creating topics and posts - that way you should have fewer disadvantages.
