    It doesn't make it clear in "Search Threads and Posts", that if you specify a prefix, you can only search the threads. I can think of many times that you'd want to search for posts within a thread with a specific prefix.

    Should you be able to?


    prefix of XF 1.3 and search for the word "Authentication". The page above does not appear.

    Would this be considered a bug?

    from what I can see the _md_prefix_ is added to the metadata field of posts in xf_search_index.

    The is similar to another issue (that is something that would be fixed in the future), but the prefix is only associated with the first post of a thread.

    So unfortunately there isn't a way around it right now.
