Search Function



Is there search function where members can search topic that may have already been discussed in the forum?

I use divi theme, which has a search module, however I cannot make it search specifically to the forum pages only.

Could the be an option in the pro version?


  • Hi - it's a good idea and something I will eventually look to incorporate.

    However, for now, maybe you could use another plugin that searches for specific post types?

  • I also just came here looking for search functionality. I see this was discussed here:

    I would like to see it as well. If nothing else, put a box on the forum that does a search of the whole wordpress site.

  • Thanks. If you take a look on the sidebar of this page, you should see the Search widget, second widget down.


  • Oh yes, I saw it. I guess I should have been more clear. I am using the Singularity theme and the upgraded Discussion board and I dont have a search box in my forum anywhere like the one you have here:

    But I did add a search box to the footer and it does find forum posts. So good enough for now.

    And thank you for the prompt responses and excellent product.

  • Gareth, are you saying you have since added a Search box to the basic feature set of this forum plugin? Or that you came up with a custom solution for this site's sidebar that's not inbuilt? An answer here will help future customers choose your forum plugin. :-)
