Searching *all* posts on a forum

Post by _Chris_ »

Hi all, if you wanted your users to be able to search on *all* posts in a forum, regardless of whenever they were posted, how would you do it please?

Not even sure we understand the question since searching through all posts in a forum is exactly what the search form indicates it does.

If you're asking how to improve your indexing on search engines then you should post on our main site: https://www.phpbb.com/community/index.php

Area 51 is for phpBB development-related discussion.
