Is there a way to restrict a full-text search to my favorites in TeX.SE?

    It doesn't seem to be possible at the moment, but there is a feature request on meta.SO: Search in list of favorited questions?. Apparently the search supported the parameter infavorites:1 once, but this functionality was dropped when introducing the new search as this seems to be hard to implement in the current approach.

Searching within a set of favourites has been re-implemented under the new elasticsearch engine (around January 2013) across the entire network. The following search options are available:

  • infavorites:mine - search within your own list of favourites;
  • infavorites:<userid> - search within numerical <userid>'s favourites (yes, you can search through other user's list of favourites);

Since only questions can be added to your list of favourites, some search combinations would be contradictory. For example, infavorites:mine is:answer <stuff> for any <stuff> would always return 0 hits.
