Fixed Custom thread fields and Search Forum Nodes

Affected version


Well-known member
When adding/editing a Search forum node, custom thread fields are displayed (at the bottom of the form), but they are not used in Search forums. Any data inputted in the custom fields while adding/editing a Search Forum node is not saved (as they are not used), so these fields should not be displayed when adding/editing a Search Forum node.

Thank you for reporting this issue, it has now been resolved. We are aiming to include any changes that have been made in a future XF release (2.2.0 Beta 2).

Change log:
Properly indicate when custom fields have been selected on the search forum edit page
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.

Just wanted to clarify - the presence of the custom thread field inputs here is correct and expected. The bug was that the values were not saved and that is what has been fixed.

If you specify a value in any of the custom field inputs then only threads that match that value will be displayed in the search forum.
