I’ve updated the site search feature that you see on the right side of our home page. This one is powered by Google, which offers a few advantages, along with one disadvantage.
The disadvantage is that it can only search for items that Google knows about. This means that items that are only a day or two old might not show up. The old one searched our database directly, so it automatically knew about every post.
However, the old search box could only search the text in the posts that I write, and nothing else. This one will search the posts, the comments, the forums and the wiki. Being able to search all of those from one place seems to be our best move.
I hope it helps you find what you’re looking for!
