Using the search box at top right on the LP web site is searching the 2.17
rather than the 2.18 manuals. e.g. The search submitted to google is:


Shouldn't the default search be the current stable version?

There's an issue already:

I think that it's just a matter of waiting for google to reindex the pages.
You can try and see that a search on v2.17 gives more results than v2.18
But I agree that the version should be the stable. I can't remember why the
dev version is set

As it stands, the search box will only search one set of documents. I believe we use the development set, since that will progressively improve as people fix documentation bugs.

An alternative might be to think of some JavaScript that picks up the version number from the URL of the documentation page and uses this as the search site?

A check with Google shows it seems to have indexed both 2.18 and 2.19 so the search box could be updated now.
