  • Changing default search behavior

    Searching through the forum isn't proving particularly fruitful nor is looking through admincp --- I'm trying to change the default search box behavior so that results show up as topics in descending order. Trying to do this globally on my forum.

    Is this possible to configure? I suppose I can throw another search bar in at the top but I'd prefer to modify the one that's baked into the header.

    Thanks for any tips/guidance.

    There is no way to configure the search box in the header to do this at this time. It will always use a relevancy sort order. Users should use the Advanced Search page to change various search settings.

      Gotcha, that's what I figured but was hoping I could force it somehow.

      Thank you!
