Searching on Hunch
We’ve just shipped an update to our search. The old “spotlight” search is gone, and the new SRP page is live. SRP, in searchspeak, stands for Search Results Page. That means you’ll no longer see the menu appearing beneath the search box but will go instead to a page that shows topics in which your search term appears, sorted by popularity, as well as the top three results for you (if you are logged in) and the most popular if you are not.

Please post in the forums if you have any ideas, suggestions or bugs to report. Please especially let us know if you are getting weird or wonky results, as it is very much a work in progress.
