I’ve been trying to find all files in the repo of my website, that contain a certain string. However, searching for that string either within quotes or without them, returns no results, even though the term does appear in several files within the repo.
I don’t even mean complex search terms or regexp etc, but simply single words, at the most containing some punctuation. For instance, searching for “pictureName.jpg” to see which markdown file in a website repo loads that picture, returns no result, neither does searching merely “pictureName”.
The Searching For Code part of the documentation didn’t really answer this for me.
EDIT: my bad, I had missed the part about forked repos (which is what mine is) not being indexed for searches, even with flags like fork:true. Still, I wonder if there is any other way of searching for a given term to find which of my repo’s files contains it? Perhaps if I use Github from the local client, instead of through the github.com interface? It just seems that it’s not really helpful to even fork a repo for yourself, if you are then unable to work with it (meaning also: search through it!)?!
