How does the search bar pull up past questions?

Asked by KNOWITALL (22757points) February 20th, 2019

I was searching for the Trump tax question and past Vampire threads but when I use the search bar, only a few really old ones come up.

Is there a specific way to search for past threads that I may be unaware of?

Yes. You can search with Google.

Thanks @RedDeerGuy1, I meant on fluther. I searched Trump, Tax, etc…and the old threads pop up along with users, but this thread was recent and about how much taxes we got back. Any ideas?

You can type in Google. Trump and Fluther and go into the topic and search from their.

@KNOWITALL You can search by topic. Just type in the search bar and click on the red topic and you get a chronological search results for the topic.

You can also do Google by adding the word “fluther” to the search. It sometimes comes up with stuff that fluther search doesn’t.

@canidmajor Okay, I didnt know that! Thx!

Yes, people have found in the past that using Google and adding Fluther to your search terms works better than the Fluther search bar as @canidmajor says.

The search sucks. I find it very frustrating.
