As the new, and awesome, StackExchange.com already aggregates the hot questions from across the system. I was wondering if it would be possible to include a global search function also.

  • @AndersonGreen because they added such a search to stackexchange.com as David says in the accepted answer. Dec 23 '15 at 8:20

See https://stackexchange.com/search


It's unlikely we would tackle this for a while.

In the meantime a Google search, or a custom Google search, should do the trick.

How do I Google the whole trilogy of StackOverflow sites?

  • Note that this obviously also uses Google's search syntax, which no longer supports the plus-operator. Instead, quote search terms to force including them, like multi user "vpn" "windows". (This does not seem to be a 100% replacement, but the plus-operator certainly doesn't do the trick.)

  • Would be nice if a search term would at least lead me to the most appropriate stack. Eg. for a question on 'SCADA' what stack(s) are appropriate? (if any).
