  • Yup. We had outage on search that day (11/18). It affected Forums. Not only Forums but the entire MSDN site. Things should be back to normal now.

    Thank you

  • Tags aren't included for searching, they are exposed as an alternative discovery method. So the intent is to use tags OR search. We have considered ensuring tags are included in our search indexing, but I don't have an estimated schedule for that.

    Which forum are you searching? Or where are you searching from in the above scenario? And which forum content isn't being returned as expected? More details will help us isolate and address the problem.

  • As written above I was searching in the "Smart Device Development Forum" which had an issue with the search option on "Wednesday, November 18, 2009 5:49 AM" or so. I think the problem was temporary was resolved next day. This is for your information for looking into the problem.
    There are some similar thread of this kind of issues.

    Thanks
