There are different variations to the Header Search, you can edit this setting in SETTINGS >> DESIGN SETTINGS >> Header Design tab.




Miscellaneous Search


Show Keyword + Location (default)

- What Keywords is this field looking for? 

  • Company Name / Individual Name
  • Categories (Top >> Sub >> Sub Sub) Something important for you to know is that there is a priority on how these categories are displayed.                                                 EG. If you have 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 so you can provide a more detailed search for your visitors. 
  • If you acquire the Search Member Keywords Add-on It will index all text on your members’ profile pages including custom text areas and form fields.
