"Guest" users cannot search

Post by morkus » Mon Jul 16, 2018 5:33 pm

I noticed that trying to use the search feature in my board (3.2.2) doesn't work unless you're logged in. Well, it "works", but doesn't return any found items.

I checked the group permissions and Guests are allowed to search.

Any other reason anonymous visitors (Guests) couldn't search my forum?

Would you expect it to with the search term used?

That generally doesn't apply to admin panel settings changes.
