api.jquery.com search results not accurate?

Is it just me or are the search results on the jQuery website api documentation inaccurate? I type in "hide" and the first dozen results are ajax related or other methods that I'm not looking for. Even if I search ".hide()" it returns it as the 7th result. Same thing for any other search query. Any help is appreciated, it's not that big of a problem just weird. Probably something I'm doing wrong..

I agree with you. Whatever code they are using to search through their website isn't the greatest. You would think that an article literally named ".hide()" would be the first result if you type in ".hide()". When I'm using the jQuery API site, I usually use the left hand navigation based on what events I want to happen. It seems to work better than trying to search specifically for something, unfortunately.

Yeah, the search at the jquery site isn't that great. You can use the power of Google though. Try "site:http://api.jquery.com/ hide" in the Google search bar.
