Issues with search on mobile

SlickPoon 50 48 May 27, 2016 at 05:59 PM
I posted a deal that ended up being a repost. I searched for the deal first on mobile app, as to not repost, and nothing returned. Turns out it was a FP deal that I didn't see until manually scrolling through the items. Why did it not return the original post when searched? Is it best to not use mobile for searching and posting?

It's because the default search sort is by "Relevance" now, not defaulted to "newest".
You have to change sort to "Newest" if you want to see ALL recent deal threads with your search criteria without having to scroll a lot.
Changing to desktop "Redesign" won't help, as it is defaulted now to "Relevancy" also.
The Classic view however, still defaults to sort by "Thread Date". That's probably going to change also, as more on Classic is being changed to be consistent with SD's Redesign and Mobile.

There is a thread about the new Relevancy sort in Search.
I posted several days ago about this problem, but...didn't even get a reply.
Though that thread is about the Redesign, they have also made the Search on Mobile default to Relevancy, and it supposedly uses the same algorithm.
