Search Function: Don't search quotes
« on: April 14, 2010, 01:27:42 PM »
When I search, for example, on "dick". I will get back all search results including the word "dick", but that is including the quotes people have in their post.

Please change this so only the true author will show up in search fields.

Also add the possibility to search for threads started by the same person.

This is the least of our worries. Performing a search causes the entire site to lock up for up to several minutes.

Right.  And yet another flaw with the search is that it seems to interpret words as merely strings of letters, not distinguishing between individual words and when it's part of another word.  For example, a search for "con" brings up results about conspiracies, convicts, and confidence.

One might be able to get around that by typing in " con " (including quotation marks).

Or, you know, by installing forum software that doesn't suck.

No, that doesn't work either.  I'm just getting a lot of shit about Raist's conduct or whatever.

I oftentimes find it easier to go to Google, and search there, but simply adding "site:theflatearthsociety.org" to the end.

This.

In fact, why not just add a simple:

Code: [Select]
if($_GET["action"]=="search"){
  @header('Location: http://www.google.com/search?q=site:theflatearthsociety.org');
}

to the top of index.php?
