in reply to Newest Super Search

How often are the User nodes cached? Just wondering because I search them when I get bored (which is pretty often).

I am glad to see a checkbox for PMD too. I don't remember there being one on the old Super Search.

    They aren't ever cached. The newest Super Search searches the live database directly. You can find anything no matter how recently it was added or changed.

      Ok, I figured out what my problem was. Super Search will return results for things that are listed as comments in the HTML. Then I wouldn't see that text on the page and thought it was searching a cached version of the User pages. If I had actually taken the time to view the source before I would have realized this a while ago.

      use Your::Head;

        Heh. I had the same problem. In testing, I searched for \\% and it found nodes containing \%. I eventually tracked this down to a bug in MySQL. To match \\ in a string in MySQL you have to say LIKE '%\\\\\\\\%' and I was only saying LIKE '%\\\\%'. Weird.

        Anyway, after I put the patch in to work around it I searched for \\% again and the first match I clicked on was a node that contained \% but no \\%. I scratched my head for a while on that until I decided to "view source" and search through that. (:
