(not a mycode request) - Edit Search Function
EDIT: I was pretty sure I posted this in general support cause it's not a MyCode thing... I don't know if this topic got moved or if somehow I posted in the wrong one....


I looked into the Search.php file but I am a complete novice when it comes to php and I honestly have no idea what I'm looking at.

There's a place on the member profiles where you can search all their posts just by clicking the link. I'd like that search function to be edited to do 3 things:

1. Find only the posts in certain forums (fid = 1,2,3,4) ... etc. - My board is a roleplay and we only count the in-character posting, so I'd like the search to automatically search out only the posts from the forums where roleplay is happening.

2. Display results as a Topic list instead of a listing of individual posts. - Most people just want to look for a specific thread. The individual posts are a bit repetitive.

3. Get rid of the preview/snippet of the post. I just want to see the Thread title. Most of our users format their posts with tables, so all we end up seeing in the preview is a bunch of html tags.


If anyone is able to help with this or give me a code-block to edit in, I'd be most grateful. Smile
