We have a "Saved" Search Problem
 
I'm pretty sure this used to work but apparently does not now.

Do a search of the forum.
Copy the link to the search which includes the search ID

https://www.thorforums.com/forums/se...archid=3000289

Paste the link in a post.

The link won't work.

Makes it difficult to help users find information.

And now it's making a liar out of me.

The problem with the search is that so many of these threads go to other subjects and the search gets confused. In some cases there have been ten different subjects in one thread.

Evidently the search link only works once.

The search engine crawls the index and compiles the result. It associates that with a unique ID.

If you do get results back using your specific ID, the result may be cached somewhere. Once the cache expires or is removed to make rook for another search, the ID disappears and might explain the intermittent experiences - now it works, now it doesn't.

Correct, and my example above no longer works, hence the problem with the "search ID" link and trying to provide assistance in a thread.

While it may not be used efficiently and/or uniformly, keywords are almost a sure-fire way to get similar results every time or pinpoint data. Keywords get a special place in the index with data pointers and supporting algorithms.
