    No please.

    I mean the WordPress Forum search needs major work but please don't use google search for WP codex research--just one query and already I can't find what I'm looking for. All I get is WP forum post titles and NO codex-specific pages argh!

    This is NOT useful. Please change it back.

  2. We know. The old search broke, and this was a stop-gap measure.

    Go to http://codex.wordpress.org/Special:Search to JUST search the codex alone :)

    What does that mean the old search broke? WTF?

  4. It means ... it broke. The code was using Yahoo. Yahoo decided to stop providing it. The search broke, and there was a need for a quick fix.

    I thought it was set up as an organic search like the rest of the WP site structure is.

    No - it wasn't.

  7. No, the search used on a WordPress site isn't the same as used here, since the search here needs to search the site, the forum AND the codex.
