Search for emacs (the word, not a tag). On the second page of search hits, you will see an entry for this post which has an accepted answer (from some time ago), but the search-hit entry does not indicate acceptance.

Seems like a bug.

That search result is pointing to the Answer, not a question. The Question does not contain the word 'emacs', though the answer does. Answers do not get the accepted decoration....

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks. But you are explaining away the problem as status quo: that's just how it works. How about an enhancement that shows, for answer search hits also, whether the question has an accepted answer? And maybe even shows whether the particular answer search hit listed is the accepted answer. \$\endgroup\$ – Drew Sep 17 '14 at 15:14
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Drew - fair point, I will remove the by-design designator, and draw some dev-eyes on to it. \$\endgroup\$ – rolfl Sep 17 '14 at 15:17
  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks. Actually, perhaps status-by-design applies, as that is the current design. I guess my question amounts to an enhancement request to improve the design slightly. \$\endgroup\$ – Drew Sep 17 '14 at 15:19

    \$\begingroup\$ @Drew you should consider asking a rephrased question tagged either discussion or feature-request on parent meta. \$\endgroup\$ – Vogel612 Sep 18 '14 at 10:41
