Update: v1.2.1 is now live on DC forum
So what's new?1. Searches entire forum by default, but is also capable of search within board/topic
Right now if you search using the editbox at top of the forum, while you are in a forum section, it will ONLY search in that forum section.
Now you no longer have to go back to forum index to search entire site, with new our DC smf search.
I think a drop-down solution might be nice, with "prefer hits from this section", "only search this section" and "just search entire board, dammit!" choices...
It's fairly easy for us to modify the current search boxes to better support searching within board/topic, if desired.2. Active board ranking adjustment
(thanks to mouser)
What if ZillaRank changed this behavior and always searched the whole board, BUT (here is the clever part), gave a higher score bonus to results from the section you are in at the time of search.
The script now raises the ranking of all matching topics within the forum you are browsing, while displaying all matching topics in the entire forum.
By applying a multiplier to existing smf relevance score, it distorts the ranking just a bit.
It only taking a boolean value change to turn off this feature.
Unlike standard smf search, DC search does not ignore words with 3 letters or less. So any keyword counts!
