I searched for “Steel Prophet” to check whether the problems in their artist page on Android had already been reported. The only matching topic was 

I don’t see where in the search result I can get to the post with the matching words. (In this case, it seems there was no such post until I wrote it. Same with a search term (e.g. “Ghost Town” on page 7) which does occur.

The search results should take you to the exact post, not just the topic.

(Bonus annoyance which happened to me today: So I clicked through all 45 pages to use my browser’s find in page, and after around 20 pages I got 

403 ERROR

The request could not be satisfied.

Request blocked. We can't connect to the server for this app or website at this time. There might be too much traffic or a configuration error. Try again later, or contact the app or website owner. …

and had to take a break.)

Hello @gngg, but you didn’t write a post, you wrote a comment inside a post, that’s why it leads you there. 

Anyways, I can see the discography of Steel Prophet on my android app, can you now?

Hello @Yula, sorry, that doesn’t make any sense to me. I am supposed to find (the start of) a post because of a matching reply (I assume that’s what you mean by comment), but not the reply?

BTW, I was mostly referring to the state of those post’s replies before I wrote mine, so the “Ghost Town” example query is maybe the better example to talk about.

No, still no Steel Prophet discography in my Android app, even after force stop and deleting cache. But shouldn’t we discuss this in the “… wrong profile/page” topic?
