in reply to New Feature For Simple Search

Couldn't we rename the "Search" button to "Lookup", and "Super Search" to "Search"? The electric shock idea has merit, but it's going to be tricky to make that work properly cross-platform.

Also: have a great 2009 everybody!

    Or perhaps rename Search to Simple Search; then Super Search can become Search. And perhaps Simple Search can fallback to a Google search (using site:perlmonks.org) if nothing's found, saving the user the next (obvious, to us anyway) step.

    And I'd reserve the electric shock for people who compose a node containing code without code tags, look at the preview of the result, ignore it and post anyway. Sigh.

      I was thinking of "Quick Search" but "Simple Search" might be better. Or "Overly Simple Search" (okay, that's a bit too much). The word "Super" might also be confusing because "Advanced" is the term commonly used elsewhere.

      With that said, why not just have the current "Search" call "Super Search" with the default settings? Then it would be a "Quick Super Search", which could be shortened to "Quick Search".

      Update: Fixed typos and reworded the "Advanced" sentence.
