Description

I have a question about the Search Box on the Groups page. What does it search? Does it search by the name of the group only or is there metadata about each Group that is searchable? I guess the same question applies to all Search Boxes on the Commons.

Hi Stephen. Here's a rundown:

- Groups search box searches against group Name and also Description
- Members search box searches against user's display name, user_nicename (for all intents and purposes, this is your login name), as well as all profile fields. This is slightly funky because a couple of our profile fields are not stored in a native BuddyPress fashion, and so are not searched in this way (Positions is the one that comes to mind)
- Blogs search box searches against blog Name and Description
