TR Site Search

By debuggist Staff ·
We're trying a different implementation for search on the site. One thing that we've noticed is that search by title is much more accurate. Is it worse in any way now? What is better about it?

We'd like to hear from you, the Community.

Thanks,
Doug

After a few quick test searches

by jdclyde In reply to TR Site Search

it seems to actually work, for the most part.

I did try to use the qualifier of + between two words but it didn't seem to like it.

mind you, when I tried to find some of my cooking discussions, I typed "cooking jdclyde" it wasn't even close.

Right off the bat

by The Scummy One In reply to TR Site Search

I can see the post, but not which thread it is in. However the threads tags are visible.

Edit: also, nothing is sorted in any kind of order that I see. Looking at dates, it is all over the map. If I was browsing for something that I know was posted 3 or 4 months ago, this does no good.

An example

Could you reply or PM me an example URL?

Thanks Doug

by The Scummy One In reply to An example

I just sent a PM with a URL + info.

Apparently I was incorrect about the Thread title, I mistook it for the post title. The search used to show the thread title at the bottom in small type with bold. This was my bad -- sorry for the confusion.

As for the dates, I think a sort should be able to take care of that.

I can't see any noticeable difference.

What, specifically, has been changed?
