Description

2 years ago
What feature should be changed? Please provide the URL of the feature if possible.
==================================================================================
The search page [1] includes two filter sections in the side bar, "Skill Level" and "Document Type" that should be removed

[1] https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/search?q=rust&topic=api&topic=css&topic=html&topic=js

What problems would this solve?
===============================
These are probably not used, and clutter the UI

Who would use this?
===================
Users would only filter by topic

What would users see?
=====================
They would no longer see these filter sections

What would users do? What would happen as a result?
===================================================
They would continue to use site search, but be unable to filter by Skill Level or Document Type

Is there anything else we should know?
======================================
MDN staff suspects that these filters are not used, and that there is insufficient document tagging to support them as written.
