3416 - The addon l2target doesn't appear on Curse search results.

Curse ticket 26437: "Hello, Please report this issue to Curse Forge. Thanks!" --LawBringerSR2

-----

Curse,

I'm the maintainer of the addon l2target (http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/l2target) and it's been reported to me that when searching by "l2target", on the Curse's website search (http://www.curse.com/search?type=addons&search=l2target), the results do not show the l2target addon.

I'm not sure if it was something I did (e.g.: the addon name conflicts with something on the search query? Or it's a caching issue? Or if it's because the addon is marked as beta?).

If you could point me the reason why, I'd appreciate very much.

Tyvm,
Atari314.

    @Phanx: Go

    Yeah, while this remains unsolved I'm telling ppl to search for it on Google directly (https://www.google.com.br/search?q=l2target). The first results point right to the proper location. It would be nice if the Curse Search could work, tho.

    No surprise. The search engine on Curse has been beyond useless from day one. They should really just get rid of it, and use a custom Google search instead, since searching for "site:curse.com blah blah" on Google produces infinitely better results.
