Multiple references to same thread in search results RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • One thing that annoys me about the search feature is that when my search term is found multiple times in one thread, it adds multiple references to that thread in the search results, one for each occurrence.  I think a thread should only show up once in the search results.  Generally when I click into a thread, I read the whole thread, so there is no need for it to be referenced multiple times in the search results.

  • when searching forums ( search bar next to thread title ) or msdn ( search box in masthead )?

    I'm only seeing a single instance of each thread in forums search.

  • I did some experimenting with the new forums, and it seems this issue has been fixed.  My apologies. 

    To see what I was talking about, go to Windows Forms General and do a search on "BeginPrint".  You'll see that the second and third search result point to the same thread.  I guess once all the forums are over to the new format we won't have this problem any more
