Some results are not showing

  • ShawnSauce



    I am having a bit of trouble troubleshooting this problem.

    I am doing a search and the results do not seem to be working correctly.

    I have a forum titled “Jazz Lovers” with a topic titled “Jazz Festival”, but when I search for jazz, the search returns the proper results for the topics, but does not return the right results for forums.

    When I am logged in as admin, the results are exactly as expected, 1 result for Topics and 1 result for Forums

    Here is a link to the search results:
    And here is a link to the forums:

  • Hi Shawnsauce,
    Please check to see if it helps you.




    Thanks for your response.

    I tried using the methods that the page you provided recommended but it didn’t seem to effect anything.

    A little more details since I have been testing this.

    I did a search not using the bbpress search function and the results were what I would expect them to be.
    See here:

    If you compare it to the results from the bbpress search ( you’ll see that the searches are inconsistent.




    Was the forum ever in a BuddyPress private or hidden group??
    Did you ever use another private group plugin and make that group with the forum private?
    Has the forum ever a private or hidden forum??
    Does this only happen in your current theme?
    Have you tried disabling all plugins except bbPress to see if the issue persists?
    Have you tried running the repair tools one at a time in the WordPress backend in Tools > Forums.


    Also I am testing with this theme and I am not getting this issue, I think there must be some setting somewhere that is making the forum not be visible in the search results.



    I ran the repair tools and it seems to have fixed the problem!

    Thank you very much for your help!
