( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
In Getting to Super Search, I mentioned that I felt a strong search was essential to the success of PerlMonks as an archived resources (okay, I didn't say it so elegantly).

Today, I thought I remembered something from the infamous "running with scissors" thread, so I went to find it. A super search for: running with scissors gave me a bunch of perlman pages (why?) and the code Running with Scissors (Listing "1 word matched" ???) but not "running with scissors".

So I think we should put some effort into improving Super Search. What kinds of features would be good to add?

  • I'd like to see results sorted by Rep. (Regardless of whether I know the rep, lets not go there again).
  • I'd also like to be able to search posts by author. (If, for example, I remember that chromatic made a good post about typeglobs that had something I specifically wanted, but I don't remember that it was Re: Validating a Code Reference, and I don't want to go through the listing of his 600 nodes, and everyone talks about typeglobs, so a general search isn't as helpful. This happens more often then you think, although that node is a bad example, because it's easy to find)
  • I'd like to not have all the perlman pages show up so often

Comments?
