  • Just added a Google-powered search option, which searches all of Wordie. The same page also has search boxes for lists and comments.

  • Hi John: I love the new search options! A couple of side-effects to consider:

    Time stamps such as "about 1 month ago" in the results of a search make it difficult to locate the comment when you click on the link. It takes you to the page, but not to the comment. Is it possible to have anchors at each comment, or to give more precise date and time information?

    The results of a comment search have oldest on top instead of at bottom as in other comment views. Also, they don't show which word received the comment. If the latter can be fixed, perhaps the same fix can be made to the page resulting from clicking on the "Comments and Citations" link on an individual's page.

  • Can someone remind me please how to search only in Wordnik comments, or only in list names and descriptions?
