In Together forum why are only UNANSWERED questions shown as search results by default? [answered]

When using Together-forum with Jolla and typing search words to text-search field even if there are questions whose title matches them, they are not by default returned as search results if question has been given at least one answer. In PC it is possible to change search to include all questions, but in mobile it cannot be done; thus the UNANSWERED shouldn't be the default.

There are some related questions and discussions already in this forum about enhancing the search capabilities but IMO this issue has not been addressed. If also answered questions would be returned (without requiring to do tag-based search), the detection of already existing related questions would be easier.

Also, we would see much less duplicates if search results were more conplete.

May be you did not select "ALL" instead of "UNANSWERED" before you started to enter your search string? (On a PC the answer list depends on that selection.)

So the question is: Why is "UNANSWERED" the default selection?

Using Together from mobile device (Jolla), how do you select that?

And yes, UNANSWERED shouldn't be the default, in any case.

"Using Together from mobile device (Jolla), how do you select that?": It seems you would need a browser that is not served with the mobile version of the website :-(

Mobile version of Together (Jolla) really needs some improvements done to improve the overall mobile user experience. Voting works ok on mobile, but many icons and textboxes are missing when comparing to desktop version, including for example chance to select ALL, ANSWERED and FOLLOWED icons.

The default questions selector has been changed to "All Questions". Thanks for your feedback!

Thank you @eric for changing that. Let's hope that this actually reduces the number of duplicates in this forum ;)
