Help me with search...

I really don't get the new style of the website, but okay... I can live with that, but the weird thing happening after the update is that i cannot never find what i'm looking for on the search engine.

I type "Imgur" and a lot of other not related styles for Google, Facebook, and more come up... Without finding anything about Imgur. What the heck, how does that work? I've also added the .com but it didn't change anything, so i'm thinking the search engine will show you what it wants, even old styles from past not supported anymore.

It's just an example... Because it happens with every single website that's not Google or Facebook. And i guess that you can actually find Google and Facebook styles when you search for them just because it's full of themes for those two websites since about 3/4 of styles here are made for them.

So please, help me getting a way to find decent styles... I cannot look foward forty pages for finding, maybe, a related style.

  • The search is broken in the user's opinion (but apparently not the dev's).

    I guess you need to use google and search for imgur site:userstyles.org and open every result in a new tab (ctrl + click) to look through. At least that's what I do at the moment...

  • Is there more info on this issue? Is it sure that dev's are aware of the broken search? Firefox version of Stylish has a button "Find styles for this site..." If I use this button say on http://mks.mff.cuni.cz, I find a style for some Republica instead of the right one. I cannot see any justification of this behaviour.
  • By the way, I have found a manual way of the right search request: For the example of imgur, go to the url https://userstyles.org/styles/browse/imgur. For other sites replace "imgur" in url by the required site.

    Can you spot the difference? We've two different urls, one came directly from your comment and it shows related results for what i'm looking for, the other is what you get for using the search box in the main site and emh... Wow nothing about imgur.

    Imgur it's just a simple example, you can use any website that you get only styles for Google and Facebook. That's not normal and not user friendly at all.
  • I agree, it is an unarguable bug. I mentioned another example of wrong search: mks.mff.cuni.cz. I would like to fill a bug in a bugzilla, but I cannot find any...
