I've seen odd results while searching and have come to the conclusion that searching is not always reliable - which is bad, right? Perhaps it's just my expectation but I do expect that the title and the body of each post will be searched. I also kinda expect that the results will be delivered in descending date within best match. e.g. if I search for three words, then all posts that contain those three words will be shown first and in descending date order, then all two word matches in descending date order, etc. Is that the case? If not, perhaps the search capability needs to be explained...
As an example of where it did not work according to my expectations was searching for this post you're reading right now... I did a search in this forum (
RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX: General Discussions)
and my search was for the title of this pos
t (Forum search functionality) and this post
found which was odd to me because this post was #1 in the forum list at that time. Now, maybe the titles are not part of the search criteria but, if that's the case, I believe it should be changed to include words in the title. If titles are part of the search then there's something wrong as it did not find this post.
Telerik. What am I doing wrong? Or are my expectations out of whack with the actual search capability?
