If I want to look for a sentence or an old discussion I'll put the sentence into the discussion search box. Sometimes it will show up, other times it will show 0 results even if I only answered the question five minutes previously. It won't even show up on google search, or even under site search. Why is this? Where are you hiding them?

I believe the discussion only exists once someone makes a comment in it, so if no one's commented on the sentence yet it won't show up.

No, they usually have comments. By sentence I mean the question and that should be there anyway. Edit: Sorry, I'm probably wrong on this. Query solved!

Did you post the discussion under a different topic, such as French, and then searched for it in Spanish? I don't know if that would affect it . . .

For example here's an exact Portuguese sentence: "Eu sou responsável pelo erro". I get 0 results for that. Can someone else search and see if they can find it?

Using the one word search term "responsável" I get 31 hits altogether but none for this sentence in the sentence discussions themselves. If I include "erro" as well I get one hit: this discussion in troubleshooting. Are you absolutely sure that sentence is in the system?

Don't doubt me Davu. I've tried it with a few I've copied and pasted.

Sorry. What I meant was: Are you sure that anyone has ever commented on the sentence? Sentences without comments do not appear in the discussion area (unless someone comments and then deletes the comment later) and are therefore untraceable. I see I'm basically repeating stecchetto's answer and I'm sure it is correct.
