( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I've finally updated Super Search so it works well again. You can search for 1-, 2-, or 3-letter words again. I have plans for more improvements to it but it is pretty darn powerful right now.

New feature never offered before is to search for replies only within certain sections.

The new search is very careful to not place a lot of load on the database server (a big problem with the previous two versions of Super Search) and to not take too long to return at least some results. So if the server is busy, you'll get your results returned in smaller batches and have to press "Search" again to continue. The more careful you are at composing your search, the more likely you'll get all of your matches in just one (or maybe two) submissions.

I don't really consider it "finished". In particular, the "starting at node ID" field sucks. It is an important feature of how the search is able to work, but a better interface to it for the user is needed. But it was to a point where it is useful (and safe) so I'm releasing it into the wild.

I'd like to support searching "newest nodes first" but the MySQL optimizer will likely fight me on this.

I'd like to support searching user's Scratch Pads, but I'll wait to work on that until after the database changes related to Scratch Pads that will reduce server load and make a lot of other improvements easy (like an "edit" link right on your scratch pad, easier linking to scratch pads, a "d/l code" link for scratch pads, ...).

And some layout improvements and some help pages are also needed.

Have the appropriate amount of fun.</Larry>

Update: I had previously made PM Discussion nodes list before SoPW nodes in Newest Nodes because I was surprised at how often I was running into "regulars" who weren't aware of some recent site change that had been covered in a PM Discussion (and because there are a lot more SoPW nodes per day than PM Discussion nodes). But there haven't been any new PM Discuss nodes in the last few days so this will likely be the first node were people notice this change. If you like, consider it an advanced XP whoring trick instead. ;)
