View Full Version : Static Search
2nd February 2005, 03:36 PM
Hey guys. Would it be possible to save advanced search (http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/search.php?) settings to a local or global ticker? Maybe create some kind of hash that gets stored and generates a URL that could be linked to rather easily. When I do a search, I get a searchid= tag, but it doesn't stay persistant--it's no good to hand off to someone else to see the same results of the search I performed. A static search feature/function seems like it would be very useful.
Maybe I just need some training, but I couldn't figure out how to do this on my own.

Why not use google - it's better than the forum search anyway.
Just bookmark this link, and put any search words you want to before the word 'site' in the search box.

the search index is updated everytime we post a new post or threads, so it is closed to impossible to store every search ID for long as the database will grow in a massive way just storing words indexz

What about If you had a checkbox as part of the advanced search one could select, that would only make that particular search static. Then maybe purge those static references after a month or so of inactivity?
Also, thanks for the tip Harryc with Google--that was a new one on me. The only thing is, it's not really an advanced search that can handle the specifics of this forum, like date range, hidden threads, etc. Still useful though.

now if everyone tick that :p we'll be messed up, and if we keep static, it will means new posts will not be inlcuded into the searches
