mu site wide search (5 posts)

    Do we have to do anything to enable the individual blogs to be searchable locally or sitewide?

    Not sure what I may have done, but all the blogs individually are only searching the main blog for queries. I would certainly want them to search themselves, or site wide across all blogs. But having them just search wp_1 doesn't provide any real benefit.

    Thanks for any info

    By default, a sub-blog should search itself, usign the search on its own sidebar.

    yep, that would be the expected behavior, but not what I am seeing. The main blog searches itself, the sub blogs return results from the main blog only

    Compare the default seachform with the themes that generate the bug.

    Theme's with their own search widgets or searchform are often the cause in my experience:

    <form id="searchform" method="get" action="<?php echo $PHP_SELF; ?>">
    <form id="searchform" method="get" action="<?php bloginfo('home'); ?>">

    A nice bit to add to your theme/widgets is "gt_search_all_blogs".
