Not sure if this should be a new topic (maybe there exists no topic explaining slow mode) or it’s about search (there’s a great topic, but I just can’t findn it). Someone asked me what slow mode was. I searched and can’t find out. (Since I’ve read every feature topic for the past 7 years, I know what slow mode is, even though I have never actually seen it).
The documentation subcategories were all set to ‘high’ already. I cranked them up to ‘very high’, and it did give them a lot more prominence in the results, but I think it may have been too much as it did drown out a lot of pretty much anything else. I’ve knocked them back down to ‘high’ again (at least for now).
I think adding in:docs or #documentation to the search is useful, but does rely on people knowing about them (and remembering to use them). Searching the Docs - Discourse Meta list is good too, and possibly easier to find for new people?
Ohh. Yes. Docs - Discourse Meta is definitely where new people should look. I think it would be good if that were more prominently available on the sidebar. Right now (as far as I can tell) you need to click the “more” and then find the docs link. It seems far from obvious. (And now I’ve hijacked this topic, with stuff that doesn’t belong, it seems).
