Re: rah_file_search

Uh, wow. Yeah, that should help! Thank you.

Question: I installed the new one after deleting the old one, but I’m wondering if I need to delete an old index or some tables? Because I’m seeing the same problem still.

Nope. What problems? For me it works just fine. I have total of four files;

  • One has name Red Sports Sedan 2010.png.
  • One has title Red Sports Sedan 2010, but name is 10.png.
  • Others are blank with numerical names 5.png and 6.png.

When I search:

  • “red” I get two hits
  • “Red Sedan” I get two hits.
  • .png four hits.
  • spORt sEdan two hits.

Argh, that’s exactly what I want, too! I’ll get some sleep and try again tomorrow. Thanks again.

Re: rah_file_search

Unfortunately, it returns results for either word, in this example you get results for all files containing “red” and also all files containing “sedan”. But wouldn’t you expect that two words are implicitly linked with an “and”, like Google does it?

Sure should. Thanks :) v0.7 should help:

  • Now filters by all words, not any.

Re: rah_file_search

A very minor point and suggestion for the next release: The search term could be displayed bold in the search results, like in Textpattern search.

Re: rah_file_search

I am using this to search for literature files. It turned out that sometimes the search returns other files. Therefore, it would be advantagous to be able to restrict the search to a file category/categories or to exclude certain file categories. Just a suggestion.
