Search Engine for Forums

I set up a search engine for my site. Unfortunately, it cannot pull key words from the forum. Is there anyway, I can make the search engine pull key words from the forum? I tried looking into databases, but I was not sure how to go about it so that my members can post and the search engine can pull up results based on their keywords.

How do you mean pull keywords from “the forum”? Have you made your own forum app for your users?

Hi, So the forum comes with its own search engine. However, I wanted to add a search engine on my sites home so that a user can search for something in the forum and it shows up as a result. I don’t know if that makes sense.

Hi Andreas, could you email me at I’d like to possibly hire you for my project!
