    It seems to me that the forum search includes the menu as part of the content to be searched. If I seek info on RadToolTip it returns every page in the forum since it finds it in the menu of every page.

    This is very frustrating and is likely bloating your forum since many people post questions that would otherwise be located with a simple search.

    I have been testing your new Prometheus suite and find it exhaustive due to this issue. I must spend 80% more time to find the answers I seek. Once in full production, this will cost me money and possibly lead me to drop your tool set as a result. I should be able to search on RadToolTip and return nothing but posts that actually contain the word RadToolTip.

    We are aware of the issue with the forums search that you mention and are currently working on it. Although the menu is included in the search results description, the title and content of the forum posts are with a higher priority and in your example the threads in the RadToolTip forum are displayed first.

    Thank you in advance for the patience and understanding.

    All the best,
