Is "Search Fluther" broken?

Asked by elbanditoroso (27693points) 1 month ago

I clicked on the Search button. It took me to a page where I was prompted to search for a Topic. I entered my search – “Weather”.

It displayed a half dozen user names that had the word ‘weather’ included, but no questions of any sort that had anything to do with weather.

Has this ever worked?

I’ve never been able to get it to work. I sometimes search for very specific topics and questions.

It’s been busted for years.

You can use Google to search it. In the search box write “Site:fluther.com” and the words you want to search for.

I just google it. “Fluther weather” and see what comes up.

I just typed “weather” into the Search button without the intermediate step and it brought up several questions about weather.

It works 50/50. Some days it works, some it doesn’t. It’s never consistent

Probably even numbered days, @SEKA when it works.

Hmmmm. Never paid attention, so I’ve got to get back to you on that @elbanditoroso

Maybe it only works for people with odd number zip codes?

Or people that are “odd”.

Works for me

SEKA's avatar

Maybe it just likes odd people on odd numbered days. It’s working for me today!!!

When I’m on my phone I find that if I switch to desktop mode, at the bottom of the page, a lot of features work that don’t work in mobile mode.
