( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I don't know the internals about how Super Search handles the indexing of nodes or massaging of query terms. I do have a hunch that some newbies flail with any sort of search facility because they tend to use the wrong words for the concepts they have trouble with.

If the indexing and query handling were such that it could support an operation like "find documents similar to this one" (a common feature on google and elsewhere), then Ao's suggestion could actually be worth the effort -- in two ways.

(1) If the person is stating their problem reasonably well and using appropriate terms, a list of "similar nodes in SoPW" that comes attached to the Preview page may well give them the answer they were looking for.

(2) If the text being previewed is so vague or misstated that the "similar nodes" list contains nothing relevant, the person might get a clue that their post will raise more questions than answers. (Well, okay, that's just wishful thinking.)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
