Today i noticed that the search form on this site gives the google results. It even “clicks” away from this mainsite to google.
Sadly; i find this a step backwards.
I liked the filtering of results between forum and the connect place and i always found my answers right away.
Now, it’s pfffffff…
Yeah, I prefer it this way. The old search was slow, you couldn’t refine your query within 10 seconds etc.
With some clever Google searches (using for example FireFox keys) you can replicate the old search in terms of limiting results to forums, connect, wiki etc. inurl: or intitle: are key advanced search parameters.
I am extremely surprised that the people that created Magento didn’t think to include a search option that displays results on the website. The google search really sucks. You can’t select/filter what you’re searching for, and overall is really poorly done. I have tried to search for extensions but there’s no search option. How in the world should I find the correct extension?
