Default search results as topics instead of post?

Postby Hagar Delest » Wed Jun 20, 2012 9:58 pm

Shouldn't we default the option to display results of searches as topics instead of posts? Especially for the quick search field top right.
For example, compare those resutls:
- Search for error 1316, results as posts
- Search for error 1316, results as topics
The advantage of the topics list is that it's easier to spot the solved topics where we may find a fix whereas the posts list can frighten the user with tons of hits and no visual indication of relevance.

+1. But is this possible? I don't remember seeing this on the ACP... I need to look again...

It may need the edition of a phpBB configuration file in the root folder on the server.

I HATE forgetting to set the search to topics and getting those huge results sets!
