Search function is dysfunctional

Recommended Posts

Posted · Search function is dysfunctional

When searching on some dutch words, i kept getting the same amount of results: 11880 in the forum. Even when searching on a Britney Spears songtitle i got those results.

Shouldn't it say: 0 results if there are none? See image

Google search is working better for this forum right now. They really should fix the search on this forum...

@SandervG promised an improved search, what's the ETA of this feature anyway? :)

I would not say Google search is working better but rather it is working. The forum search is not. Neither it didn't in the old forum. I guess it never will. Unless Ultimaker finally can decide to use Google search.

But somehow they seem to have decision processes which block any reasonable and any only half-way prompt decision. This might have been caused by the mistakes they made in recent past by being too quick to introduce and announce new things (forum, Cura, dual extrusion).

It is a continuous work in progress. We are doing tweaks to the search-tool to make it better but at the same time we are well aware there is still plenty of room for improvement.

We are also looking into implementing google search in the website, but that is currently still under investigation.

I wish the search results allowed you to sort by newest to oldest.

It works...a bit. But is a struggle, I agree

agreed! And much more filters offered after the search results, now I get spanish threads from 2012 first etc etc. Never underestimate the value of a good search tool imo, especially on a forum!

I try to be grateful I get results :)

And I agree about the languages. But at least none are in Klingon, Romulan, Vulcan.... ;)
