Robotics Forum Searches not working properly RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • The Microsoft Robotics Forum was recently moved and some of the search boxes don't work properly.

    When I am at the top level Robotics Forum the search box says "Search all Microsoft Robotics Forums". When you enter text into this search box and search it actually returns results from ALL the Microsoft forums, not just the Robotics forum. Actually it seems that none of the searches performed inside the robotics forums or the actual posts themselves filter to just the robotics forum.

    When you are in a specific Robotics forum (Say the CCR fourm) and enter search text into the search box on that page it always fails because the search text was changed. For example a search for "webcam" fails to find any posts because the search run was actually "webcam meta:Search.MSForums.ForumID(c936d61e-8411-4971-92c0-1ebac09ddbb3)"

  • That meta query is what actually scopes a search to a certain forum (or category).

    We realize that it's not the best user experience and are working to improve it in the new year.
