in reply to Improving 'Search' feature

This is something I was thinking about asking for some time ago. I found out, however, that a simple solution is to not select Note from the Choose types to limit results to: area. You can choose whichever other area you want but, if you exclude Note you won't get any replies.

Update: I missed this, but in your post, you were asking about the standard "Search" feature. For this, I guess it'd take a little work from vroom. I'd simply recommend using Super Search instead, I guess.

    Sherlock,

    As I pointed out, I'm talking about the standard search feature that appears on every page of PM not the "Super Search". Since the standard search has no options, I was just thinking they could transport the option you mention from the "Super Search" and make it the default behavior for the standard search.

    $PM = "Perl Monk's";
    $MCF = "Most Clueless Friar Abbot Bishop";
    $nysus = $PM . $MCF;

      Nice idea.

      Result can display number of replies, so you can see how big thread might be.

      To make errors is human. But to make million errors per second, you need a computer.
