Search System

glFusion provides a unified search system that works across all types of site content, including stories, forum posts, files, photos, pages, and any other plugins that hook into the search functionality. The search also honors glFusion's security system, so only items the user has the rights to view are returned in the results.

The main search mechanism is the Search box located at {site_url}/search.php. A simplified one is also located in the site header of the default CMS theme. Simply type your search term(s) and glFusion will scan through the site and return a list of matches.

Search Form

Clicking on the Advanced Options link next to the Search button will display a selection of advanced search filtering options. Here you can specify additional search criteria, such as searching only a particular content type, filtering by date range, customizing the search type, filtering by Author, and specifying the number of results to display on a page.

If you are using an external comment engine, such as Disqus or Facebook Comment, the ability to search comments is removed from the advanced search above.

Admin Config Options

The site administrator can set some global search config options. For more info, refer to the Search Configuration documentation.
