Search facility for answered questions

There is no search facility for already answered questions. To find an answer every page has to be scrolled through or another similar question is asked over again. I’ve tried the search box on Q&A but no answer is given, am I doing something wrong or is the facility not available?

Hi,

Thanks for you feedback on this. Basically the search function in the Q&A does work but quite frankly its not great. If you search for “search facility” you should find this post but I agree that it could be much better.  The Q&A is a plug in for wordpress (this means someone else crated it and we simple install it) So this isn’t something that we can easily fix.

You can however use a very handy little advanced search parameter in google.  For example if you wanted to search the Q&A for the words chocolate you could type into google site:http://www.cakeflix.com/questions/ chocolate

or replace the word chocolate  with any other search term. You then get the benefit of the googles search algorithm which is understandably far in advance of our own! You can even spell things wrong ( as i do all the time ) and it should give you the “did you mean” option.

I will put this on my list of possible improvements.

Hope that helps

Cheers
