Title: Search broken?
Post by: eto on 09:03, 20 October 21
When I do a search I only get exactly 30 results, e.g. when I search for
(advanced search, most recent first, match all words, no options selected)

If I check "topics subjects only", the results are different but also not correct. E.g. for "6128" I get now 4 pages with results, 2013 and older. 

Seems something is broken there...

No, that's the way is always worked.

It's always been broken, but it's not something that we can change. I use Google with the Site option to find things in the forum.

Seriously??? I thought I used the search in the past and were able to find also recent stuff.

Ok, thanks... will use Google too then.

Unfortunately the search function was never great no matter how much I tweaked it... Looking forward to the next update!

Currently I do not get any results no matter what I put, but I see that it is normal, right?

QuoteYour search query didn't return any matches.

Until recently it returned at least some results.

It is like it is - search will not work reliably. But maybe it would much better to disable the search and instead have a page that documents how to use Google. That would help to avoid misleading especially new users.
