Search problem in the GitHub site

Searching content in the forked repository has no result!

Hey xhdix,

So currently i don’t think that github provides support for searching code inside a forked repository, if you really want to search the term, i would suggest you move to the main repo.

I think this is done to prevent flooding of too much data of searching across forks, maybe (i hope) this feature will be added in later in the future.

I implemented your search in the parent repo and got some results: The Search Link

If it is true, it will be really funny!

The difference between the parent and the fork is the changes that are made. Here I want to move and remove a lot of addresses and then send PR to the parent.
Without the ability to search in the fork, it will be very hard for me!

This is a simple suggestion, chances are you had your reasons not to use this, but how about you just clone the fork (in which you have all the changes you made) and then search them using a code editor or a similar searching tool of some sort, you must get the results then.

Yes, you are right.
But my main purpose of reporting here was to add a few simple lines of code to the Github search section.
In fact, the result is wrong, so that’s a problem.
