    • How do I get a subsite that is deeper than the radio button choices?

      How do I set subsite that is deeper than radio button choices - The radio button choices for https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/luis/ do not allow me to go all the way to /luis but stop short at azure. Are there APIs for the definition editor that are public and supported?

      • BUG: Very different results for very similar queries

        If we submit a search query for "cottage hot tub" on our site, the Custom Search returns 478 matches.

        However, if we submit a more specific query "cottage with hot tub" we get 1630 matches.

        Why would adding the word "with" to the query result in more matches, rather than less?

        Also, these similar queries "log cabin st austell" and "log cabin austell" return the same number of matches as expected, but they are presented in a different order. Why?

        • BUG: Pagination is broken

          When using the 'count' and 'offset' options to paginate results, the 'totalEstimatedMatches' value changes after a certain number of pages.

          For example, a search for "cottage with hot tub" on our site initially shows 1630 matches. But after paging through the first 21 pages of results (offset 440), the number of matches drops to 499 for no apparent reason.

          Surely the number of matches should stay the same regardless of where within the results you are viewing them?
