It's less expressive because it is (as far as I can tell) no longer possible to search for threads (only posts) and it's no longer possible to specify a forum to search in.

For that matter, while the documentation below the search results says you can use author to search by post author, it doesn't actually work. So there isn't even any way to search for posts by a given user.

(That's a bug, of course, not a design flaw, but still.)

That's incomprehensible to any software developer.

@Wellwater
Clunkier, yes, less expressive, no. It's basically nerd option, just like command line vs GUI (which it effectively is): extremely more powerful if you know how to use it, but trash for the averaged person who just want predetermined fields to put what they want into and get results.

What are your thoughts on having a seperate page/section for forum/comment searching? That page is mostly for imeage searching, and spends a lot of time talking about attributes that communications don't have.

There is that little guide at the bottom of the forum search, but most people probably don't think to look there

Yes, but that wasn't previously necessary for searching the forums, and for forum search it's a lot clunkier and less expressive than the previous search form. I suspect that's what Jarkes meant.

Huh? The syntax (and general interface) for searching for forum posts/threads? You are talking about that syntax, right?

Of course, technically that might actually be right, but if so, there was a lot of syntax I was able to push off on the much more sophisticated search form with no loss of expressiveness, so I'm not sure that counts for much.

…I'm just going to say it. I hate how the search syntax is so much more complicated now, especially when it comes to searching posts.

Wait, you rewrote the entire backend in a completely different language, with a completely different development framework? In 6 months? With pretty much zero impact to the UI? That's seriously impressive.

@byte[] But in that case, why does the URL generated when typing in the search bar and hitting enter involve a (probably unnecessary) UTF-8 encoding field, e.g. https://derpibooru.org/search?_utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=philomena ? https://derpibooru.org/search?q=philomena is equivalent to it.

Default search

If you do not specify a field to search over, the search engine will search for posts with a body that is similar to the query's word stems. For example, posts containing the words winged humanization, wings, and spread wings would all be found by a search for wing, but sewing would not be.
