Stupid question but can’t see how to search the forums….

    Apart from the search box at the top of the page, which seems to redirect any query to the blog posts page, how do you search forum topics?

    Yes! Good question.

    A popular way to do this is with a plugin:
    https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=search+bbpress

    Some integrate the bbPress search with the WP search, some keep them separate; both ways make sense on different sites.

    I think the OP means searching the forums right here on buddypress.org. Like hatiro, I’m wondering the same thing.

    Agree. I think it’s a good question.

    @hatiro this is a known bug that is being worked on.

    This ticket is the one they are currently using to track the issue if you have any additional information that may help them – https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3908

    @ChrisClayton Thanks, if its a known bug not a problem, just wanted to make sure it wasn’t me missing the obvious.

    Thanks, @aces, for the workaround — I forget the ability to do that in Google.

    However, I really think this problem needs to be addressed. It was first raised over 2 months ago, with the last reply by @JohnJamesJacoby a month ago. It’s so bleeping impractical to have to wade through all the posts. I’ve posted my issue, but what a waste to have to do that if it’s already been resolved elsewhere.

    I truly appreciate BuddyPress, but really can’t make much use of it as long as this is an issue. It would also be good to have paid support available. (And yes, I did post all this on the feedback forum.)

    I certainly agree that this forum needs a search feature. I often find answers on other sites due to this.
