#4358 closed defect (fixed)

Support Homepage Searches Defaults to Forums Instead of Articles

Reported by: JarretC Owned by: ck3lee
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: HelpHub Keywords:


If you go to https://wordpress.org/support/ and do a search, it defaults to results from the forums. While forums are a form of support, we already have https://wordpress.org/support/forums/ where searches related to forums posts should exist

The search option at https://wordpress.org/support should default to the 'Support Docs' tab in the search results

Change History (10)

Okay, we literally just added that like 3 weeks ago, intentionally.


Somebody has to pick a side here.

That ticket deals with search results from within the support forums itself, this deals with searching from the https://wordpress.org/support/

As the grids below the search are specific to the newly migrated support articles, the search results shown after searching should reflect this

In 9596:

Support Forums: Ensure docs-specific searches are directed to the "Support Docs" tab of the Google Custom Search results page.

See [15846-dotorg].
See #4358.

In 9597:

Support theme: Default front page search form to search "Support Docs" documentation instead of forums.

Otherwise, there is no direct method for searching the documentation (prior to reaching the Google search results page). Forums-specific search can still be done via the forums.

See [15846-dotorg].
Fixes #4358.
