LQ search engine
 
Hi Guys!

Not sure whether this is the right place
to issue a request :) but I'll just go for it!

I was wondering whether it would be possible
to have some sort of AND-clause for the search
form that allows to search for a keyword
and a user-name ...

To give an example:

I do remember that That_Guy had a good solution for
such and such problem, I'd like to be able to
put "such and such" in the keywords field, and
"That_Guy" in the user-name field to get a narrower
match.

It would be quite cool if I also could narrow the matches
for threads by user by selecting whether the person
started a thread or whether he participated (some of
us here are VERY "productive" ;}).

'nuff rabbiting ;)

Cheers,
Tink

you can't search on wether someone started it specifically, but you can search for a user and a keyword at the same time already no problem. is that what you meant?

Sort of ... but it doesn't quite work like I'd want it to :)

For instance this thread won't show up if
I search for netware and Tinkster. I like to follow-up
on my posts, but do not necessarily repeat the keywords
from the question.

Cheers,
Tink

so basically expadning the scope for the search to go through the entire thread, not just each individual post? i get it. it would be possible i assume, but would neeed to be implemented in a more involved way i'd expect. i'm sure jeremy will be able to comment soon.

Hi Chris,

and that pretty much sums it up :}

Either that, or I'll have to fall-back into
what I've been trained on for hotline-
queries... regurgitate what the problem
was :D [or start quoting excessively ;}]

Cheers,
Tink

Tinkster,

Thanks for the suggestion. I agree that searching for netware and Tinkster should give that thread as a result. I will see what I can do.

Thx Jeremy,

I'd greatly appreciate that :}

Cheers,
