Full Version: Quick Search is not working.

I have full text search enabled but quick search is not working. However, advanced search does work.

For example if I create a thread with the title: "bug" and the post content: "This is a test sentence"

Then I search for "This is a test sentence" using quick search here:

Then I get this message:

Sorry, but no results were returned using the query information you provided. Please redefine your search terms and try again.

But if I search for "This is a test sentence" using advanced search here:

Then the thread shows up in the search.

How do I make the thread show up in advanced search and quick search?
The quick search only searches the titles of all posts ("search titles only" option on the second screenshot). This issue will be fixed with MyBB 1.8.4 (report:
Is there a temporary get around for this until MyBB 1.8.4 gets released?
Well, just apply these changes manually: but not in the file, do it in ACP for your themes' header_quicksearch template.
Thanks Destroy666.
Much appreciated
