    Search View

    Hi,
    My default view's for the lounge are 'Threaded Mode' with 'Collapsed Threads'. When I select a board and open a thread, I see the whole thread, which works well for me. However, If I use the search function, I don't get to see the whole thread, just the post!! I have looked in 'Controls' but Can't see if this is changeable?? Any idea's??

    Thanks
    Nathan

    That's normal behavior. In the "Search results for query" page, you'll see only the posts in which the search terms were found, not entire threads.
    If you click on one of the posts in the list, you'll open its thread.

    Hans,

    Yes, the post opens with all other entries prior to or after 'that post' (within the thread) collapsed. I have to open each post within the thread individually in order to read the whole thread. The only way that I can view the whole thread (in one) is to save the post to my watched items and view the whole thread from there. Unless I have a setting wrong somewhere?

    There's a button above the thread on the right hand side that lets you switch to flat mode. See screenshot below.

    If you click on the graphic that looks like an "=" sign (near the top right of the page), everything expands and you can view the complete thread.
