We expect people to do some research before asking a question, especially with duplicate questions. But I note that there is no site search option.

Wouldn't that be helpful for people, ultimately reducing questions ending up in the review queue?

UPDATE - here is a screenshot, no search box

  • What exactly do you mean by "site search", and how is it different from the search box at the top of every page? Commented Aug 16, 2022 at 3:59
  • @MaximillianLaumeister see my screenshot. Should there be a search box? Firefox with Privacy Badger and Ad Block Plus and Duck Duck Go, but disabling them didn't make a difference

Either your screenshot cut off the black bar at the top, or one of your extensions is removing it. I also use Firefox as my primary browser, and it works fine for me.

Webmasters site search

I have a search shortcut installed in Firefox for Webmasters site search. I have https://webmasters.stackexchange.com/search?tab=votes&q=%s bookmarked with the Keyword set to w. Then I can just type "w keywords" into the URL bar and it will search on webmasters with the words I'm searching for replacing the %s in the bookmark.

  • hahaha....well now I feel stupid - I have dark mode enabled on my browser so the black bar kind of blended into the toolbars. I can't believe it...I have been a webmastersSE member for over 10 years and still missed it.
