Why are search results focused on channel title and not thread/content title?

    Aside from un-highlighting the forum title in activity stream, I even suggest to make it gray to give more focus to the post title and content. A lot of blue links make your eyes busier.

    See screenshots below:

    Funny thing is, I only really consciously realised I was always doing it after reading this...I just sort of kept correcting myself and not giving it any thought.

    I have to say I have sometimes done this in vB3 and vB4 search results when displayed as posts. More specifically, clicked on the thread title rather than the post title, if that makes sense, leaving me at the top of the thread instead of looking at the actual post. Accordingly I made some changes to the layout for my own vB4 site. I think, however, that that is just an example of me being a clumsy oaf.

    I agree with that, I'm always clicking the wrong one.

    Added my vote in the tracker.

    I suggest using topic view for your searches. It would be more to your liking. You can choose it on the advanced search page.

  • Why are search results focused on channel title and not thread/content title?

    When making a search, the first thing I should want to click is a thread title.

    Right now you guys place all the focus on forum titles. Whether i'm doing a forum specific search or global search, I think we can all agree the main priority is thread/content title, not the category/channel. ESPECIALLY if i'm already searching within a specific category, now you have 20 results where the main focus is all a link to the same channel title.

    This issue isn't specific to me or any of my client's websites since I can change it myself, but figured i'd point it out.
