Manga Search Function Changes
« on: October 11, 2007, 12:01:11 PM »
I've modified the search function on the manga downloads section so that you can search for things easily.

Features included:

  • autocomplete search so that you won't have to type everything yourself, just type up a few letters and it will load matching words from the database
  • fixed the search so that any words (in any order) is matched from the database. The autocomplete only contains a few of the words that can be combined. Now you can search for something like these in any order you want
       
    • crossdressing shoujo shounen
    • complete sports comedy

    One question I have is do you guys want the search to match all the words in your query or any of the words in your query. Right now I am using the AND to match all the words instead of OR for any of the words. Tell me your opinions so I can modify the search engine extensively.

Well, any of the words... i think.

It would be useful if you're finding for a manga that you barely remember the title... you see, there are lots with difficult titles...>_<

Yeah, pauline is right.
