Improve the search please?
« on: October 31, 2010, 11:04:34 pm »
Hey

I was wondering if you could improve the search, whenever I search things it comes up with the same results. I'm not offering a solution, merely expressing my views :D .

Thanks for reading quite a pointless topic  :roll: .

You can try using Google: http://www.google.be/search?q=site%3Asfml-dev.org+something&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

This is exactly what the site search does. Concerning the forum search, I think it's good enough.

I'm sorry but I don't understand what your problem is. Maybe you can show me an example?

maybe my criteria is too broad but it just seems like the results aren't as specific to the criteria.

Just like your answer :P

Really, I also think a concrete example might be of help.

phpBB search usually defaults  to an OR relationship. So if you search for "Car wheel" it gives you every post that has car OR wheel in it.

The option to search for "all the terms" should ideally change this to an AND relationship, but it doesn't always work!

Best way to go about it is to simply type out the booleans. Like "AND Car AND wheel".
