Search function needs improving in the forums
I know this is a longstanding problem but nothing seems to be getting done about it, so I want to add my concern. Searching for previous topics is important, but it's hard to do. The forum is an important part of Duolingo.
No sarcastic comments about "just click search" please. Anyone who has used the search function will know it is nowhere near as good as on other forums.
Luis said they are redoing the forums this year. Hopefully that will include a better search function.
They have a test item called growth_google_forum_search in the informant_reference section of the user data. I have wondered if they are experimenting with embedding Google search, but I haven't seen anyone post about seeing this.
