Search only searches topical guide

Postby rosendahl80 » Tue Aug 22, 2017 1:57 pm

I noticed recently that the Gospel library search function only brings up results from the topical guide. Previously it would break down several categories. As an example, it would say Book of Mormon 22 results, Old Testament 12 results, New Testament 9 results, etc. Now it defaults to results only in topical guide. I use this function often and have only lost function in the past month or two.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Which OS are you on? Android, iOS (Apple), or Windows?
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

As you start to type a search, you will see search suggestions or shortcuts appear below the search box, including shortcuts from the topical guide (if what you're typing matches a topical guide topic). The shortcuts are intended to help you get somewhere quickly if you know what you're looking for (for example, if you type a scripture reference) – but the app doesn't start a full search until you press the enter/search button on the keyboard (or one of the search suggestions to limit the search scope). Did you start the full search by pressing enter?

Ok, so here I am a month later and figured it out. I didn't have the content downloaded. If content is not downloaded it won't search a specific book, chapter or page. Just the topical guide. Download the content and works.
