Im new to Joomla and trying to figure out how to use search. I have three categories: French level 1, French level 2, French level 3.

When I do search for French level 1, all three categories come up in my search results. In addition to this problem, the results display with the category name at the top (rather than the article name).

Any help is appreciated! Thank you.
