  • similar threads from non-searchable forums

    hi everyone,

    i have several "offtopic" forums on my board with search indexing disabled on them in order to avoid meaningless threads mixing up with useful information in search results. however i have noticed that threads from these forums are still displayed in "similar threads" field. is this an expected behaviour? is there any way to exclude these forums from similar thread lookup?

    I think that's normal. Try rebuilding the similar threads:

    Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Update Counters -> Rebuild Similar Threads

    If the threads from the non-searchable forum are still there then you know that's the normal behavior. Changing this requires custom code. If you have some coding ability then you can post on for help with this.
