    This is a bit of a nitpick, but I think another useful option would be to search posts, not just titles. Including comments can bring up way too much, and limiting it to titles would bring too little. And a lot of times the original post includes more descriptive words than the title.

    would also help a lot to sort the results by newest/votes/comments and like you said category, and maybe add a new option "range of votes" basically you get all suggestions with a number of votes within your range for example 10-15 votes, <100 or >2000.

    I think you should be able to filter the search results you get like how you can when you haven't searched

    Since this post is under review, I want to link people reading this comment to another interesting post about improving the searching functionality: https://feedback.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/community/posts/360076061331-Random-Posts (this isn't my post, it's just a post I like a lot).

    Agreed that Search functionality needs big improvements. As-is, it's basically impossible to find anything with the search bar, and the search breaks after a few pages because the lower half of the page (Knowledge Base) runs out of results and won't let you go any further to see more results from the upper half of the page (Community) without editing the search page's URL (the "page=" part).

    Features I'd personally like include:

    • The ability to only search through Knowledge Base, Community, or both.
    • The ability to only search through Comments, Titles, Post contents, or a combination of the three.
    • The ability to filter your search results by Category.
    • The ability to sort results by Votes, Comments, Date, and Activity.
    • The ability to filter your search results by Needs Info, Under Review, Announced, Released, etc.
    • A bug fix for the above-mentioned problem where searches break after Knowledge Base runs out of results.

    Hope that was a comprehensive list!

    Searching for posts is a pain in the neck most days so this is a 500000000 star idea
