Re: More advanced, or just smart search

Searching for a phrase wrapped in quotes (double or single) doesn’t seem to work. I tried using +(australian friend) as well but it returned 13 results although the post with the phrase “australian friend” in it was top of the list. I presume the rest simply contained the word “friend” as I can’t think I’ve used “Australian” anywhere else. I’m modifying my instructions as I go. ;)

Well apparently I mentioned Murdoch some time ago so Australian is in there twice but he is definitely no friend.

Re: More advanced, or just smart search

Gee things really happen in the night.

We can safely assume that my installations of txp is ‘kinder’ on my plugin then yours. I’m not blaming anyone here but I can search for senteces, “something somethingelse” and use +, – etc.

I’m gonna do this: I’ll install the latest txp and try it out. I’ve also decided to make a go at making this plug ‘for real’ since it seems to be much appreciated. I can not tell you when it is going to be complete but I’ll promise you I’ll let you know, here on this thread, when there is anything new to test.

And I guess that this Henrik Henrik business is just a freaky accident. But I’m not the other Henrik, I’m sure of that since we don’t look alike… ;)

Happy TXP-ing

Re: More advanced, or just smart search

By the way, I just got news that the 4.1 branch of txp WILL have search for individual words… so perhaps my efforts are (again, I made a try at a 404-plug finished about the same day that the 4.0.2 got released) somewhat in vain.

But I’ll make the plug anyways: good to get to know the system!

Re: More advanced, or just smart search

I spotted your 404 thread. :) Where did you hear about the TXP search. From the email listing? I don’t think I’ve had one today, or was that yesterday?

You don’t think this is a question of different MySQL versions do you?

Re: More advanced, or just smart search

I, boldy, last night sent a patch to let txp search for multiple words, and the answer back contained the ‘secret’ information.

I hope I haven’t disclosed a top secret tho… ;)

Re: More advanced, or just smart search

Well if it’s in the normal email listing then it won’t be a secret for me but as I say I haven’t received one yet and I don’t think they are considered secret. Anyone can sign up for it. I tend to just forget about what I’ve read anyway. Saves getting peoples’ hopes up. ;)

Search in quotes does not work for me, I know the sentence I search for is there, but I get no results. + and – do work, just not the brackets.

Nice toy to play with!

Re: More advanced, or just smart search

I’d be interested in this plugin, too. Thanks for working on it!

Also, would it be possible to have the search include things like keywords or custom fields? I don’t think the current default TXP search goes into that — it just searches the title and body.
