This plugin will show similar content titles on post screen, after user types and leave the text field. It uses defaults from IPS4 core search, like sort by relevance or date, number of characters per word, permission for the items, etc.  Works in Clubs too.

Works in apps:

  • Forums
  • Blogs
  • Downloads
  • Calendar
  • Pages
  • 3rd Party Apps: tested on Tutorials, Classifieds and Videos System.


  • Number of content items to appear
  • Allowed groups to use the feature
  • Limit content to a year

Congratulations on the plugin, the idea is very good, but the IPB search is poor and the results that appear sometimes  have nothing to do with the words typed in the title field. In the test I made the mobile version, the result does not go down on the screen and if the person does not climb the screen, ends up finishing post without seeing similar topics. There is some fine-tuning that can be done to improve these two issues.

Working great! The only thing that bother me when typing the title there is no popup of similar content until you press space button.

Works great! Only thing I'd love to see is a way to enable/disable it on specific forums!
