in reply to Revisiting Super Search

Wow, so there actually is support for such an idea. I raised the issue three months ago at Search Options, but no one replied! Some specifics related to your suggestions:

  • I'd like to see results sorted by Rep.
    I'd rather have a set of options for ranking, like post date, rep, hits per page, etc.
  • I'd also like to be able to search posts by author.
    A great idea.
  • I'd like to not have all the perlman pages show up so often.
    More generally, I'd like to be able to sift out nodes based on what area they were in (with a multi-select fieldmajigger). That way you wouldn't find Running With Scissors when you were looking for "running with scissors".

    At the risk of making this thread needlessly long, I'd like to see search return all matches by default.
    (Of course turning off the categories you don't want to see is also important)

    My opinions are expressed on behalf of:

    • myself - old hand at perl, new to perlmonks
    • my co-workers - new to perl, users, but not active participants of perlmonks

    All the best,
    DouglasDD
