Recently I’ve noticed that when I search for a specific topic, the search results give me a post in the middle of the topic instead of the first post. This happens when a post in the topic contains the same search term that the title of the topic includes. Here are two recent examples from http://community.wanikani.com:
Searching for “Self Study Quiz” or “Self-Study Quiz” gives me [Userscript] Self-Study Quiz - #731 by prouleau - API And Third-Party Apps - WaniKani Community instead of the first post.
Searching for “ご注文はうさぎですか” gives me ご注文はうさぎですか miscellaneous discussion - #93 by seanblue - Reading - WaniKani Community instead of the first post.
I put this in #feature because I’m not 100% this has ever worked the way I’m describing. However, I search for the second term above several times a year, and I’m pretty sure the search results used to return the first post in the topic. If this was changed unintentionally at some point, you could consider this a #bug.
I know there’s an advanced search option to only search topic titles, but that seems unnecessary in this case. Since the search term matches many posts in the topic as well as the title itself, I think it should automatically prioritize the title match and return the first post.
