Does the board "search" feature search the archives as well as the main board?

I have some members that think it does not, while I have always just assumed that it did.

Thanks,

I'll have to ask BbBoy Jim, I don't know I never used the feature so I don't know offhand. I'll post the answer later after I find out. :smile:

Thanks Pam. The member found the post in question after scrolling through every post in the archives.

But I think I found the answer to my question. I went to the post he found and copy and pasted the subject line into th search feature, the search did not find the post.

It would be great if the search feature had the option of searching the archives also. Especially on my board, because there are so many posts that they move off any particular forum and into the archives very quickly.

Perhaps in the list of forums to search, Chris could add the archives? I have no idea, but am sure he knows if it can be done or not.

I'll ask him next time I see him Jim and post the answer here. :smile: Sorry you had to find it the hard way, but if we can make an archive search feature it might be easily added, if it is I am sure it will be added. :wink:

It is there now in the search screen for admins to utilize in searches if they so desire along with a Toggle All checkbox so that was a really good addition Jim, thanks for posting about this and that you'd experiemented and weren't able to call up anything in results from the search as it was before this morning. If you need anything else just let us know. :smile:
