Improvements to search functionality?

What Michael Degatano said, 3 years ago -- Rethinking Search for 7.1

Which of these have been done? Which are addressed by v7.1.8 Elastic Search?

A couple of things I'm still running into now, that are still problems as of v7.1.5 (yes, ancient, I know):

  • When the search runs into a java.net.SocketTimeoutException, there's no message to the user about the problem (see Standard for User Error Messages?)
  • The choice of context vs. name search is fairly important predictor of how long the search will take. But there's no UI to toggle those until after you search.
    • Can that be included in the search bar?
    • One trick, I know, is to preface searches by "old:" to search the names directly.
