Hello everyone, so I'm new here and I'm just getting used to stuff on this app. I found the Q&A Discussions and I find it difficult to search... I typed something in the search but I didn't find it. How exactly is it meant to be used?
Pardon my ignorance 🤓
Better use google to search sololearn. In google or your favorite search engine type
<search term> site:www.sololearn.com <- this is the key
You will get much better result.
Use + - infront of search term for must include or exclude the search term
use "search term" (include double quotes) to search the full phrase
to search your own post quickly (you do require it at times)
<search term> <user name> site:www.sololearn.com
[ Before asking a question on the forums: ]
• Google Advanced Search — https://www.google.com/advanced_search
⇨ Set domain to 》sololearn.com《
for search only on the SoloLearn
• Eclipse Wiki — https://wiki.eclipse.org/Before_asking_a_question_on_the_forums
• SoloLearn Advanced Search — http://www.freecodeexamples.com/2018/12/sololearn-advanced-search.html
Yup! The new beta version brought an improved search engine which uses a different algorithm to sort through posts. The new algorithm works a lot better than the older one, so just hang tight and the update should roll around in the near future 😉
I'm sorry you have to experience difficulty in searching Shirley, when all the while we are all encouraged to do just that before we post something, it's kinda ironic being disciplined to search first - but the search engine is inaccurate.
I'm waiting for that day when SoloLearn team comes up with a strategy for battling tags abuse, as you probably know, too many times questions are including irrelevant words in the Relevant Tags section, while the search engine uses those words as search terms.
Thanks to tag abusers we have tonnes of invalid responses as search results. In the meantime I guess, using external search engine is our best bet, as ~ swim ~ suggested.
Every post with crappy tags should be shot on sight by the mods.
At least mfd'ed.
Because seriously, a user who was delirious enough to cram their code into the tags - or their favourite poem - will hardly be able to act upon the request to 'please change the tags to something fitting'.
I couldn't agree more ~ swim ~
But at the same time we can't really blame them, as there is (currently) no forum introduction or such, they are mostly just unaware (Yes there are actual spammers). We can still try to remind them about it though, whether heeded or not shouldn't be much concerned, we tried 😁
I'm new here as well. You right it's difficult, but it is easy to learn. I am guessing this app give simple information to learn Python and get to ppl to help each other like a community in each section in the comments.
Good luck 🤞
