I've been doing a few searches today, and I dislike a few things about the interface:

1) The "previous/next page" line only shows up at the top of the search results, not at the bottom, which A) made me not realize I even had more than 20 results the first few times I did a search, and B) is inconvenient, because I generally want to go to the next search result page once I'm done looking through the current page, i.e. when I'm at the bottom.

2) The search results show up as separate questions/answers instead of full posts. I get a lot of results for single answers to the same question, which is pointless because I'm just going to look at all the answers anyway once I go to that page, and the same post showing up multiple times in my results just means I end up opening multiple tabs with it because I don't remember if I encountered it already or not. Is there any way of searching full posts instead of all questions/answers separately?

Any chance of these things changing?

(Not sure if this is the place for feature requests... Let me know where to move this if not.)

Thanks for the feedback. I have created a new issue for these requests:

https://github.com/ialbert/biostar-central/issues/133

just a note, you can always restrict the search to only show you questions, but consolidating the identical results so that they only show up once should also automatic.

Please follow the issue to see when we make changes that address them. Should happen within a week.

Great, thanks! I'll remember where requests are supposed to go next time.
