I’m quite new at this forum (first day / my first message to write) -sorry in advance if the topic is a kind of repeated feature request or obsolete.
So, my suggestion to improve the search functionality of forum messages the following ways:
-search filters (like only in certain sub topic, only for a certain time of periode, word operators like search FEZ Hydra words BUT NOT e.g. EMX).
+extra filters and signes as e.g. certain question is answered and/or close or not.
Without these functionalities it takes huge amount of extra times and efforts to find something ‘usefull’ in TinyCLR.
Thanks in advance,
@ Peter - If it has not been said yet, welcome! Improved search has been at the top of forum user requests for some time. GHI is aware of our collective angst on this topic
We actually hand filters but we never explained they work. We will be revisiting this soon.
@ Gus - Hand filtered? Ha! You are definitely getting an auto-correct TShirt for Christmas.
Is that why the searches were so slow?
What is the meaning of ‘hand filters’ ?

@ Péter Seszták - “Had Filters”
Gus is notorious for iPhone spelding hense the comment from @ ransomhall “You are definitely getting an auto-correct TShirt for Christmas.”
Actually, I think he meant to say “We actually have filters…”

@ ianlee74 - tomato, tomatoes - it’s all the same init? :b
That is funny. I meant to say “have filters”
To a Time Lord I suppose “have” and “had” would mean the same

The search seems “additive”, which I always found strange. Search for a particular word, and you get a nice list of results. Add another word, and you get MORE results. Search for Atmel and you get 118 results (119 now with this :)) Then search for Renesas and you get 6 results. Search for atmel renesas and you get 123 results. :-/

@ Brett - “atmel renesas” gives you one

But there are now at least three posts that I think have both those search terms in them. A “normal” search restricts the results the more keyword content you add. it’s like it’s using an OR not an AND.
