Plugin, snippet, hack to include bbpress topics in wordpress search
I’ve searched these forums and found mostly technical replies from developers (I’m semi-technical so making up some code from scratch and knowing where to stick it is out of my league).
I’ve tried “Everything Search” which does not index topics.
I’ve tried free “Relevanssi” search which has a check-box for tpics but shows them as “not public” (https://wordpress.org/support/topic/does-relevanssi-search-include-bbpress-forms-topics-and-replies?replies=3)
I’ve tried various snippets that I found via google search – each with additions to functions.php a couple don’t work, and a third actually works, but it blanks-out the topic pages (the page is still there but the text of the topic and replies is missing).
I’ve enabled Jetpack “omnisearch” which has no options but still doesn’t show the topics in the search results.
Please point me to where I can find information to modify my WordPress, Theme, or BBPress installation so that search results from the main form include topics!!!
P.S. My website http://www.hippressurecooking.com – I have lots of forum topics discussing Christmas Puddings but if you search for “pudding” on the main website all you get is the posts & pages with the word “pudding” and none of the topics with valuable info.
P.P.S. I have search enabled in the forums, but in addition to that I would like the results all in one place from the basic WordPress search that shows up on every page.
