Digital Doctor: I wasn't able to reproduce. Did you have any other restricts active, and is it possible that you cleared the text in the search box? When I search now, forum-restricted to the XenForo forum like your top set of results, I get the attached screenshot.

And when not forum-restricted:

The interface is great. The search results are useless. I cant find anything and there are always duplicate results. Can this be tweaked?
I have been using google ever since threadloom was installed.

here is an example

onesignal push returns nothing and only returns the first post, not the latest or anything -new-

Yes Google site search is much better the the search we have now.

pierce: Do you have "Search this forum only" or "Search this thread only" checked? We follow the forum's settings for those check boxes. Here's what I get for [onesignal push] w/o those checked:

Alfa1: Sorry to hear that it hasn't been great for you. We uncluster results if there are very few threads on a topic to make it easier to find your post inside the thread, like with [onesignal push]; and we also boost original posts since those usually serve as discussion anchors. This usually occurs though with a very small percentage of search queries. PM me some examples if you're seeing it frequently and I'll take a look.

I am not a fan of unclustering. I was trying to find the thread discussing the 'global new thread button' addon that TAZ uses, but could only see unrelated results and an older thread. So I just posted to the older thread instead. This is consistent with my previous experience with threadloom on TAZ. I dont know if its a matter of tweaking or if its just how TL works.

You can bypass Threadloom if/when you wish by clicking the Advanced Search link (the red magnifying glass in the search field).

Has Threadloom been disabled on TAZ? The searches now appear to be standard Xenforo searches.
