A Note on Website Search Functionality

As it turns out (I had to do some digging to be certain), it is a default feature of WordPress to exclude password-protected posts from the search results. Thus, if you search for a ticker using the search tool at the top, you will not see, in the results, posts that are “active” and “protected.”

I believe there is a way to modify this feature, and I am in the process of comprehending the necessary code adjustments that may be necessary.

In the meantime, using the ticker list on the left sidebar will deliver to you a list of all posts for a given ticker, including password-protected ones.

I will let you know when I have this resolved.


Note: When articles are first published, most of them are made available only to my Patreon supporters (I do try to publish some public posts on occasion). Over time (usually after a period of a few weeks or so), I make all of the work public. To gain access to my work when it is produced (or to join my Discord chatroom), please consider becoming a patron. Note that there is a 7-day free trial period. More information may be found on my About page and on my Patreon page.
