    Since searching profile posts are pretty much useless, I would like to search only threads and posts from the search_bar. Which would also enable Show results as threads from the front page.

    Did anyone successfully do this?

    Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> search_bar

    Add the red code (two pieces):

    Code:
    <xen:edithint template="search_bar.css" />
    
    <div id="searchBar" class="pageWidth">
    	<xen:hook name="quick_search">
    	<fieldset id="QuickSearch">

    				<!-- end block: primaryControls -->

    Fantastic. Thanks :)

    Show results as threads should probably be available from within forums, but I guess that would require a bit more heavy modifications

    Also it breaks search in this thread only.

    Probably conflicting search types with the additional code. Making them exclusive would require scripting.

    Hey @Jake Bunce - wanted to see if there was a different way to change the code in the search_bar template to make it not break the "Search This Thread Only" option, maybe with a conditional or something. I'd like to make it so that the default search bar option is to display results as threads outside of browsing a forum or a thread.
