We had to disable it for a bit, bots were using it as an attack vector to DDoS the site.

Like PuttsDad said, SearchVoat.co is the current best option.

I could have sworn I remembered there being one at some point. I didn't realize that was the reason it was removed. Dirty fuckers.

It was garbage though. Like Reddit tier search.

There used to be one yes.

This might help in the meantime: https://searchvoat.co/

if using duckduckgo you can add !voat to your search, and it will use @searchvoat system.

you can also use site:voat.co on DDG to restrict results to our site, but it uses DDG's system to do the search.

i've had varying levels of success with both methods.

Hey @PuttItOut any chance of putting the search box back in the sidebar linking to SearchVoat.co?

[–] heygeorge 1 points 1 points (+2|-1) ago 

Putts already spoke about this recently. In short, the sidebar parts of the code have to updated manually, and since he's been updating the code over and over recently... This has sort of fallen to the wayside. The only way around is to include it in the master, and then if somebody clones Voat, they get all of that text in their version, too. #PuttsLogic

I hope we're doing ok with the trafic from that other site. I'm sure the grand poohba must be busy in the back end. Send my thanks.

I kind of like the fact we have a separate site for searches, it's like the inside secrets of voat!

[–] smt42 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

On Google or DuckDuckGo (and probably others) you can search "site:voat.co [your search]" and it should turn up results only from the site. I know that for Reddit that method is much better than the site's built-in search box.

I think there used to be one, but it was removed because it was putting strain on the site.

Shut up you little faggot and take what we give you. You've been here 1.1 days and you're already bitching? You fucktard, we fucking took you in you fucking ingrate.

The only question I want to hear from you from now on is "What's the best way to gas jews and lynch niggers?"

[–] zepled112 [S] 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

I'm so sorry Mr. Goathole sir, you are absolutely fucking correct.

So I offer you a joke: what do a nigger and an apple have in common? They both look good hanging from a tree.

I hope this appeases you sir!
