Searching Blogs for specific posts not working
Possible Bug, but more likely my mis-use
In Blogs I tried to search for â€Clickersâ€ and got the following response:
â€No blogs found. Blogs must fill in at least one piece of profile data to show in blog lists.â€
My most recent post was about clickers and it is tagged as such. What is â€profile dataâ€? What does the Search actually search?

I agree that you've found something confusing on the site. This is not due to your misuse at all -- rather, it's just bad out-of-the-box functionality in our site platform.
What that blog search does, actually, is to search through the titles of blogs on the site. Thus, if you were to search for "bleeding," your own blog would show up. Making this especially confusing is the default text in the search box ("Search Anything").
We're currently developing a new site-wide search tool that will be pretty great when it's finished, but we have a little while to go before it will be done. In the meantime, we are planning to add a google search box to the front page; I just haven't had time to add it yet, but it's coming soon.
I'm going to mark this ticket "Resolved," but I agree that this is a problem -- one that we're already working to alleviate. Thanks again for submitting the ticket.
