Search Widget not working
I have on my blog a Search widget , but it is not functioning.
I wonder why ?
The blog I need help with is justicewatcher.wordpress.com.
And the address of your blog is http:// ??? We need to see the issue to be able to help.
If your blog is justicewatcher.wordpress.com, your search widget works just fine. Typing a word or sentence from your posts lists all the posts with that word or sentence. Everything is as it should be.
I typed “lika” and “LIKA” into the search box and both searches returned this post: “We are not all equal in front of the law. Not in Sweden !” It works in Safari and also in Firefox 3.5.4 for me.
I typed “bostadsrättsföreningar” into the search box and it brought back this post, “Likhetsprincipen.”
yes, that is what I also get. But it is not what I expect.
I expect highlighting of those words. The search brings back a post, and not a word !
A post can be long and contain several instances of that word
I know what you mean, but that is how the search works in wordpress.com.
There is also a payed version of WP, does it work that way too ??
What do you mean by paid? On free-hosted wordpress.com it will only work that way. On a self-hosted wordpress.org installation you can install your own search plugin.
By the way, once I submit this message, there is no way to edit ?
No. Once in, the message stays.
There is no highlighted version of Search on WordPress.com. There may or may not be a plugin for it on WordPress.org, but you’d have to ask over there.
All of you folks seem to be linked to your sites. I just klick on your icon. I would like to do that too.
I don’t know how
