Searching is significantly worse with the new website beta

I love the new website beta, but whatever happened to the search feature needs to be undone. I'm referring specifically to the Minecraft Mods section (others may be the same, but I don't use them.)

Before, I could type something like "apple" and get a bunch of mods related to apples. Usually they'd contain the word apple in the name or description, and that worked fine.

Now if I type "apple," I get 2 results related to apples, and 198 that are completely unrelated. And yes, I'm being sure to search by "relevancy."

    hello Toad, I have the same problem if I search mods with "roof" for Minecraft 1.15.2. It fucking finds only three mods and searches completely different mods.

    Also, many versions are missing in terms of mods with alpha releases.

    For example, I can't find the 1.14.4 version of Biomes O' Plenty. Very frustrating.

    same when I search mods for 1.11.2 with "immersive" it finds a few mods and then doesn't find anything. FUCK CURSEFORGE (beta, I'm more akin to the old one)

Hold on!
