Description

The new search feature of the Haiku website is worse than the old. It finds only few articles compared to the former, which used Google IIRC.

Compare what results you get when searching "resources", compared to a Google site:search.

This commit may have something to do with the changed search. Can we revert to the old?

Yeah, I thought DocSearch would be a better option, but it appears not. I'll revert.

Using site:*.haiku-os.org instead of site:https://www.haiku-os.org would help us to find more results among all haiku-os.org's websites (discuss.haiku-os.org, dev.haiku-os.org or cgit.haiku-os.org ...).

Previously that search box was just the Drupal search box, and so it searches only the www domain on purpose. You can manually run a search of site:*. if you want to.
