Default Settings For Search Function

Post by kimokalihi » Mon May 14, 2012 5:33 am

I don't know if I'm the only one who feels this way but every time I search I have change the search settings to search only topic titles and display as topic titles. If I'm the only one, ignore this lol but it's slightly annoying. A lot of forums use these as the default settings and I search a lot.

I talked with Dave about displaying the search results as topic titles several years ago, and it requires modifying the base template/php file. This isn't a big deal, but any time you do an upgrade it wipes out the hacks and goes back to normal. So Dave was trying to keep everything pretty well unmodified with the templates so when upgrades occur things don't break or go back to defaults.

I too use the display as topic titles options, but not search only topic titles. It is kind of annoying when searching, but I've learn to live with it :)
