Searching the scriptures - the smart search isn't that smart

Postby cnj87 » Mon Oct 23, 2017 6:39 am

I just did a search for Jacob because I wanted to find all of the scripture references that mention Jacob. But the search forces me into the Book of Jacob. I can't see any way to get it to return the results that I want. The Book of Jacob should certainly come up as an option among a multitude of results, but skipping the search results screen assumes that you know what I want - and that is just foolish.

If you put quote marks around "Jacob", it will return scriptures that mention Jacob instead of taking you to the book.
