    SCF Search Page enhancement

    Members -

    Last weekend, I worked with a group from @threadloom to add a new search modification for the forums. This enhancement allows for better results when looking for items on the Forums. In addition, I have the ability to control other aspects of SCF that are not easily searchable at this point, such as the blogs (today). I will be looking to add more items to search on in the future.

    The search itself is the same today as it was last week. On the Header, below the eBay search, this is the quick site search

    when you complete the search, the results page will not use the standard forum search result, rather it will look like this

    You will have the ability to Search on Post or Blogs (currently) and you can switch this above the search window. For the Results, you can switch this from relevance to date (to see the posts by date from most recent to older). You also and search a specific forum, a user or by time frame.

    The following are the types of searches that SCF can now support

    Basic:
    • "SCF Storefront" - Searches for posts by user "SCF Storefront" Note: Quotes are needed only if the username has more than one word
    • tag:"site improvements" - Searches for posts with the tag "site improvements" Note: Quotes are needed only if the tag has more than one word
    • before:2010-12-31 - Searches for posts before Dec. 31, 2010
    • after:2014-01-01 - Searches for posts after Jan. 1, 2014


    Advanced:
    • olympics -rio - Searches for posts with "olympics" but not "rio" aka NOT operator
    • olympics+britain - Searches for posts with "olympics" and "britain" aka AND operator
    • forum:## - Restricts search results to posts from a specific forum id
    • thread:##### - Restricts search results to posts from thread id ####
    • title:"football" - Searches thread titles only for "edea"
    • pirates^2 ocean - Boosts "pirates" by a factor of 2 (can be any positive number >0, including <1), ranking it higher
    • "football traders" ~5 - Searches for posts with "football" and "traders" within 5 words of each other (can be any number between 0 and 5)

    --- Note: List adapted from Threadloom

    If you do prefer the original search, you can still use this function by click on Advanced Search in the header.

    In addition, you do have the ability to start a search while you are in a specific forum.

    From that forum, you can click on the "Search Forum" link on the filter bar.

    After you type in your search, the results page will automatically filter out the other forums and leave the forum that you started the search from to provide the results.
