Search Settings

In my forum, the search just looks for keywords in the body and not the title. How can you enable title searching?


  • I use Google Search instead, set up as a Pocket. Much better.

  • Would Google not return results from rival sites as well?

  • No.

    You sign up to Google lock in your domain, and results are returned accordingly. I've been doing this for years.

    It also serves a purpose that your pages are identified in search engines and that it complies with Google's submission criteria.

  • Check out the Google Search panel (toward the top of the page) on my website:, which uses a Bootstrap 3 theme.

  • remove the padding of .table

    and remove default search box

    then search box will be clear

    beautiful theme

  • Will do thanks.

    I came across this script that lets you search your site with google in that way

    <script type="text/javascript">
    var domainroot=""
    function Gsitesearch(curobj){
    curobj.q.value="site:"+domainroot+" "+curobj.qfront.value
    <form action="" method="get" onSubmit="Gsitesearch(this)">
    <input name="q" type="hidden" />
    <input name="qfront" type="text" style="width: 180px" /> <input type="submit" value="Search" />

    @ianw5555 Your comment was caught in the spam queue. Therefore that delay. I have formatted the code block to increase readability

  • @ianw5555 I use Google Search for deep dive Search Analytics, not sure that script would do the job.
