Search results from the archive


when I enter the Q&A area and simply search for a term like "Document" or "DMS" the first result is always from the archive and it shows a huge number of hits.

I think it would be better if looking in the archive entries is an option but not done by default. When I search I would expect to get only current data and not archived one.

    You might expect that, but many people searching for answers to questions will not know if their question is about a new problem or an old one, and so I would suggest for most people a combined search is more useful.

    Maybe it would make sense to be able to switch off the archive search if you are sure there won't be any answers in there, but I don't believe that should be the default.

    If you use and type DMS, you will get the following result list:

    On the right you can see filters by type. Discussions and Documents are in the archive, Press is something you won't be probably be interested in, Page is for the Wiki (I assume you don't want that either), People are unimportant for your criteria. This leaves you with Question and Blog types. This is how you apply both types as filter:

    And you also have date ranges on the right, if you don't like playing with filters :)
