! Search Keyword Highlighting Bug

Featured Lock Resolved Bug

For some time now I have been having issues with my sites that are running Joomla 3.7.2 or higher. Since the update to 3.7.2 my site has been displaying code tags around the search keywords when anyone performs a site search.

I have been keeping an eye on this issue since it happened and have found the Issue Tracker online, although everything points to the problem being caused by template overrides rather that the Joomla Core.

Attached is a screenshot of the issue on one of my sites. This is an INTERNAL site - our company Intranet - and as such is not accessible to anyone outside our network. I can't give you access so screenshots will have to do.

I have another public website using Corporex, but have not upgraded to the latest Joomla version because I want this issue fixed before I upgrade as our site is viewed by large number of our community and we cannot have unresolved issues displayed like this.

Here is a link to the Issue Tracker where I found the idea for the solution of this bug. This does not work for me as I have checked my files and they already have the correct code.

Can you please let me know how to solve this issue so I can fix by broken sites and get the others updated and secure on the latest Joomla versions.

Thank you!
