Is it just me or is the search function within the Magento website and especially the forums not very good?  It seems like I can never find anything with a search, and always have to browse for it...Even if I know exactly what post / wiki article I’m looking for!

It’s not too bad IMO. I usually end up using Google for any website anyways, even if they have a search function.

site:domain.com keyword1 keyword2

Much easier to find stuff, especially if you know how to use some of the advanced search features, like:

site:magentocommerce.com intitle:slow

Or…

site:magentocommerce.com inurl:performance -speed

You can run the same Google switches in the search box in the community site. The search in the site is powered by Google.

Oh cool, didn’t know that. I figured it was the search in EE (which isn’t that bad). Good to know I can just search in here the same way smile
