New search options
The team has made some improvements to search, including the following new options (taken from the search help):
filtering by user
If you want to search for posts written by a particular user you will need to know their unique user number for the community. This can be found by looking at their profile url. You can then use
user:xxxxwhere xxxx is the unique user number you are interested in.
filtering by category
To filter by category, you will need to know the unique numeric id for that category. This can be found by looking at the url shown when you click to view all posts in a particular category. Use the formatting
category:xxxxto apply this filter.
filtering by post type
If you want to restrict your search to a particular post type, type
post_type:into the search bar, and a dropdown menu should show the available post types to search. Note that not all communities may use all post types.
filtering by number of answers
If you want to find posts with n answers, use
answers:n. This is particularly helpful to find unanswered questions:
answers:0. You can also use greater and less than symbols to find posts with a range of answers, e.g.
answers:<5shows posts with fewer than five answers.
We hope these new options will help you more easily find what you're looking for, whether that's unanswered questions, posts in a particular category matching some criteria, articles by a certain user, etc.
ArtOfCode and Sigma did all the work here (code and doc respectively); my role was to keep making requests. :-)
