Search behaves poorly

#1

Why does a search for “saveSetup” only return:
http://forum.pkp.sfu.ca/t/error-on-uploading-image-on-journal-step-5/232

When
http://forum.pkp.sfu.ca/t/permission-and-forbidden-403-error/4965
and
http://forum.pkp.sfu.ca/t/ojs-error-saving-setup-step-3/717
would also be good hits, at least.

On the old forum, we replaced the search form with a Google search. If the discourse search seems to be missing useful stuff, that’s an option. Personally, I tend to search Google with

site:pkp.sfu.ca

…since that’ll get results from the old forum and the wiki as well. I don’t use the Discourse search.

Cheers,

So then, what would it take to replace the Discourse search with the Google search?

Hi all,

Some relevant discussion, both on using the Google search and improving built-in search:


(No conclusion in particular – just that we’re not alone in either consideration.)

Cheers,
