Understanding the Q&A section of Sololearn

I am already quite some time on SoloLearn, but I still don't understand the Q&A section. How does it work, I mean what is the structure behind it? Is there a MAIN forum? A topmost page wherein all others are included? Or are the sections independent? Let me explain: Right now there are these sections of Q&A and my theory of their meaning: - Hot Today (today's most x upvoted posts) - Trending (???) - Your Network (post from people I follow and my followers) - Most Recent (the last x posts) - Most Popular (all time most upvoted posts) - Unanswered (ALL unanswered posts) - My Questions (questions I asked) - My Answers (All posts in which I posted an answer) In most internet forums there is a main page which contains different sections which again contain other sections. It works like a tree or compared to XML like a node tree with one top-level node and its various child nodes. When I search for something I never know which section to choose to get the most accurate results. How is SoloLearn set up?

Pete Wright When I search something I use the section "hot today" or for popular posts "most popular". If I'm right, both the text and the tags will be searched.

The Sololearn forum is set up in a way that all threads are considered the exact same - just another post in this section. These posts are than organized into the different sections based on when they were posted, number of likes, etc. under those different categories. Currently the best way to find posts related to a specific language would be to search for posts with the language name as a tag (ex. entering JS in the search bar to find posts related to JS), but otherwise they're all just in one big section.

Thanks Faisal But that means that I have to search multiple sections, one after the other, because the result may be in any of them. Do you get me? Is there any way to perform one single search to get the desired result? A few more things: How do I search for tags? Do I need the # in front of the keyword? Is there any wildcard I can use? eg.: * or ? For example, I'd like to search for: "Javascript Regular Expressions" What is the best way to do so? 1. "javascript regex" 2. "js regex" 3. "javascript regular" 4. "js regular" A shame that SoloLearn doesn't support Regular Expressions in the search field 😜😜😜

Honestly the best way to search would just to add keywords from your question so either "javascript regex" or "js regex" should work. I'm pretty sure how it filters out threads and such is by comparing tags (and maybe the title) to what you entered so having stuff like that should help with finding useful posts🤷‍♂️ The search feature is really limited right now so hopefully a future update makes it easier to search for stuff 😉
