New search page features

The search page (linked at the top of each page) has recently been enhanced with a couple of new features that may have gone unnoticed, so we wanted to mention them briefly.

  • Exact phrase match: Up till now it wasn't possible to search for a phrase like "Apache Tomcat" - you could either search for all posts that had both words somewhere in it, or search for posts that contained either of the words. Now there's a new checkbox "Match the exact phrase entered" that will return all posts that have both words in exactly that order with no other words in between.

  • Last month we added the "which I started" checkbox to the "All topics posted to by this member" option. This is useful if you remember that some other ranch visitor posted a useful reply to a topic you started, but you don't actually recall the topic in which this happened. Then you'd enter that other rancher's member name (or ID), select that checkbox, and - presto!- only those topics will be found which you started, and to which the other rancher replied.

    I was looking specifically for this a few days back, but couldn't find it. Good to see this added.
