    Hi All,

    I have upgraded our search system today and modified several settings. It should perform better. Keep in mind when using the search bar within a forum, the search only searches that forum. If you are in a forum and wish to search the entire site be sure to disable the option "Search this forum only" as seen here:

    Is it also possible to add the option of omitting results from Classifieds to this box? In some searches I receive so many results from classifieds when I search something and they are generally irrelevant for my search.
    I know I can select the forums I want in advanced search but I do no want to select that many things for every search.

    The similar threads box should only contain results from the forum you are in, so unless you are in the classifieds forums it should not show results for the classifieds.

    Sorry I could not explain, my question was about searching (box I mention is search box), question should be something like below:

    When we search something in route folder (home) or remove thick to search all forums, could we have option to not to show results from classifieds?

    Not really important to have such feature, but it could make searching easier as it will omit classified information which is irrelevant for searches in most cases (for me at least :smile:

    I can definitely do this, it makes a lot of sense and is a great suggestion. It's might be a couple weeks or so as all energy is mostly on the photrio dev environment (discussed in announcements).

    If you're doing that anyway, you might consider being able to omit other sections too, such as the Lounge.
