Works well - and I meant to close this (going through issues this week to re-assess).

I changed the mail archive search again.

The search via DuckDuckGo was really bad, because the content was never indexed correctly. I activated the service via Mail Archive[email protected]/index.html . All new emails from April 2019 onwards will be indexed and searchable. The emails before this date are not indexed, but at least the new messages will be archived.

On the support page ( I have put a link. The search page can now be found in the menu.

I wouldn't like to change our Archive HMTL page, there is no option in Mailman, at least I haven't found any how to change it on the backend page. I would have to change them directly on the server. I'm not sure if it will be reset at the next update. I also leave such things on default to avoid accidentally creating security holes. I think who really wants to search has enough options to do it now.

I have put a link to the old CV archive on the search page.

I just added the mail archives to the Search Console yesterday, that usually triggers the indexing of the content after a few days, so it takes some time until all posts are visible. At the moment there are very few posts available.

Thanks for your suggestions, I'm happy to try them out. But I won't be able to implement it until the end of the week.

@ Sam
Thank you for doing that!
I did a search test a got one hit, but not on a couple of others. The archive indexing is a time consuming process as mentioned.

Add-on suggestions/questions:

1. Publish this search feature on the GG site (Support>Mailing list ...Cin Info page) and add it on top of the Mail archives site, optionally also add it in the foot note on received Mails

2. When this GG mail archive is ready, would it be possible (an idea) to link also the Cinelerra cv mailing list archive, as it contains several cingg related topics and a lot of generic Cinelerra topics

@terje @PhyllisSmith
I have linked the mail archive with the DuckDuckGo search engine, i.e. we can now also search the mail archive. However, I have to emphasize that many posts have not yet been indexed. Indexing takes a long time, but once it's done, you can use this feature. An own search script which searches this archive was out of the question for security and performance reasons.

By the way, the Google search is even worse when indexing such mailing archives, so I included DuckDuckGo.
