"A map that tried to pin down a sheep trail was just credible,

 but it was an optimistic map that tried to fix a the path made by the wind,

 or a path made across the grass by the shadow of flying birds."

The Search facility for Mapleprimes is broken. Recent posts containing the relevant keywords are not being returned in search results.

For example, searching for either Azul or Rossler does not return a match with either relevant, matching post currently on mapleprimes' front page.

It appears as if the searchable terms database is not being updated with recent results (since the last mapleprimes system overhaul. some months ago?!).

Q1) Why doesn't this subthread show up when putting MPFR in the Mapleprimes Search?

Q2) How does Maple make use of these?

Perhaps it would help to be able to flag not only replies but also parent forum and blog posts.

In Maple's Help system there is an icon to switch the Examples from 1D Maple notation input to and from 2D Math input (the default).

Why is the 2D Math form of the Help Examples in red? That doesn't match the any of Maple's interfaces' entry modes, does it? Shouldn't the input be in black, to match what appears to be 2D Math input in Worksheet mode?

Also, the 2D Math form of the Help Examples loses inlined explanatory comments. For example, on the modp1 help there is this, in 1D Maple notation...

The rightmost column on this page, entitled "Points from all posts", has all zeroes.

Also, the description says that there are five classifications in the table. But there are only four.
