Media search not working

  • Based on what I’ve come across online and on this forum and after attempting practically everything that’s mentioned
    here, here & here, my last resort was that confusing if statement…
    if( !is_admin() ) add_filter('pre_get_posts','vibeExcludePages');
    Where does this go? Which .php file to edit? I have to be doing something wrong!

    For the sake of not getting ripped to shreds for not being clear, here are the details:
    – Running WP 3.3.1, clean install w/ minimal plugins:
    – Akismet (self explanatory and no issues I’ve found about that affect media search)
    – cforms (form plugin, removed from WP repo due to something irrelevant here but also no issues noted)
    – Google XML Sitemaps
    – Hotfix (recommended in one of the previous links)
    – WordPress Importer (data import tool)
    All have been disabled and issue persisted… my logical deduction was that it’s the theme that’s causing this – just like the other posts.
    I’m using a Parent/Child custom theme that, unfortunately, cannot be dropped as it has cost me in customization (design, coding…) and the headaches of having to deal with incompetence – reason why I’m here now!
    Not to keep side tracking, I attempted to insert the code above in the functions.php (as I came to understand in one of the above posts) of the parent theme first, then the child theme and lastly, both of them at the same time… I put the code at the beginning of the files after the <?php tag. None had any effect, search was still returning 0 results despite there being well over 100)
    So I’m at loss and I’m reposting this same issue – since the other posts had been closed for some time – I hope I’ve made my explanations clear enough and I truly hope there is an answer to this… seems ridiculous to go over tens of pages looking for a media element

    Thanks for reading this and have a good one,

  • Solution still undetermined… Anyone here have some insight or maybe can point me in the right direction?

    It seems to me this is incredibly rare or is incredibly difficult to solve/troubleshoot.
    I tried to revert to twenty ten and search is also not working… I’m beginning to rethink the “it’s the theme” theory
    In the hopes someone’s had a similar run in or a possibility at a fix
