Advanced search, search in forums does not show all forums

Post by MarkDHamill » Thu Mar 14, 2019 9:04 pm

This is an odd one. Logged in as myself I can see in the permissions system that I have permission to search a forum. But in the advanced search interface, the forum does not appear in the list of drop downs. Any idea why?

Nothing odd about the forum: phpBB 3.2.5 recently upgraded from 3.0.0. Standard styles. No special extensions except the recent topics one.

You also must have permission to read a forum.

The problem is probably not my English but you do not want to understand correctly.

On the forums tab click the little gear next to the forum not showing up, make sure "Enable search indexing:" is set to yes.
