There are different variations to the Header Search, edit this setting here in SETTINGS >> DESIGN SETTINGS >> Header Design





Keyword + Location (default)


What Keywords is this field looking for? 

  • Company Name / Individual Name

  • Categories (Top >> Sub >> Sub Sub) Something important for to know is that there is a priority on how these categories are displayed.

    Example: If there is a Top Category called "Music Academy" and a Sub Category "Music Masterclass", the Top Category "Music Academy" will show up in Search Results, both categories have the same word at the beginning "Music" so the system will pick the one with the higher priority, in this case the Top Category, also a keyword search that is an *exact match* for the name of a category will *only* return results in that category.

    We also recommend reading All About The Keyword Auto-Suggest For Member Searches to provide a more detailed search for the visitors.

  • The Search Member Keywords Add-on It will index all text on  the members’ profile pages including custom text areas and form fields.
