Displaying Comments in Search Results (5 posts)

    Users need to be able to search the site and view specific matching comments in the resuls. I've made a user-generated content site with WordPress by allowing users to enter their mini-articles as comments. I've installed a plugin that will search through comments, but I don't know how to display individual comments on the search results page. So far the closest I can get it displaying the one article that contains all of the comments. Any ideas? Thanks so much in advance for your help :)

    Get hold of the Search Everything plugin.

    I tried that, and unless I'm mistaken it only searches through comments and displays the articles that they are associated with in the results.

    WordPress 3 enables 'Search in Comments' and 'Search in Tags'.

    WordPress v3.0 allows you to search in comments and search in tags, but will it display the text of the queried comments? When I run it in 2.9, it just shows the "page" upon which the comment belongs to, but not the text of the comment itself.
