Super Search Update

Postby Phade » Thu Jan 20, 2005 5:44 pm

Hey All,

The method used by the Super Search page to look up stuff has been modified (hopfully for the better). Please let me know if your results are still fairly accurate or even if you can tell a difference. If you have trouble with the page, definitly post here.

Looks good so far. The comments search field appears to work now which is an obvious improvement. :)

The comment's field doesn't appear to work properly for me, or at least not the way I would expect it to.

Also if you use quotes in any fields, it gives a mysql error.

I entered "believe" in the Song field, trying to find a certain well-known video so I could finally watch it, but the only 19 results I got were for songs including the word "believer" in the title.

I tried "believ", but that gave the same 19 "believer" results, plus one for "believing".

"Belie" is no better; neither is "belie*".

I had to search for "potent" in the Artist field to get what I wanted.

Hey Scintilla,

I'm almost done fixing the others. You're issue has been confimed by me, but it really doesn't make sense that there should be an issue with that particular search term. Researching...

I actually wasn't trying to test the search or anything when I tried that; I just noticed the problem and figured that this would be a good place to report it. So I don't know if other search terms would have similar problems...

Hey Scintilla,

I've found and fixed the problem. Turns out there is the list of "stopwords" that are ignored in fulltext searches and "believe" was on the list for some reason. I've reset the system to ignore the stopwords list and the search works just fine now.

Crisis averted.

I was searching for a video with the song mad world, and I knew the anime, paranoia agent, but when I type both things in, i dont get any results, even when i copy and paste all of the information given when I just search under paranoia agent. I tested this with a few videos all to the same result. I also attempted copying and pasting the title of the video, to search under that, and it doesnt seem to work either, although that seems to be the case only a few times. I'll test this again when i have more time, but i thought it best to mention it now.

Hey Orwell,

Yes, there is currently a 4 character minimum to searches. Your query should work if you use "world" for the song and "paranoia" for the anime. I'm going to knock it down to 3 characters later today as well as implement quotes (ex. "mad world" with quotes for an exact match) and the "fewer results" option for categories.

Thanks again for your help!

Hey All,

Ok, the quoted text search portion is now working as well as "less results" when choosing multiple categories. For quoted text, it will search for exactly what you put in quotes. Ex. a search for the song "mad world" or "in the end" will pull up songs that have that exact match in the song name.

Again, lemme know if stuff breaks.

I noticed that it won't show any yu gi oh amvs. It just says there are no results. I tried typing in a song from one of the one's I've already downloaded, but it still didn't show any yu gi oh ones. That's the only problem I found, though. I hope you can fix it.

Thanks! ^__^

How did you type the name in? I belive you have to put in "Yu-Gi-Oh!" for it to appear because Hyphens (-) can be considered part of the name.
