I created an exposed view filter so that users can search for words in the body of a node type but I would like the search to also look for words in the title without having a separate search box for titles. Can this easily be done?
This module will help to do you job Views filters populate
This is an utility module. Its sole purpose is to fill in one blank that seems not easy to be done using normal views, which is to use one exposed string filter to search on multiple fields.
Bear in mind, that, for now, only populates STRING exposed filters, so those filters that take an array (options) or special types won't work, although it may not be difficult to extend it.
You need to make use of
Global: Populate filters or
Global: Combine fields filter its explained in steps here
