    Search

    Eileen, some questions and suggestions on Lounge Search, at your pleasure.

    We can do "fuzzy" searches for username and word, such that "cole" AND <word> will include all posts by Legare Coleman, Nat King Cole and Old King Cole which include <word>, and all posts which include "cole" AND <word> in the text, (subject to other search specifications such as Forum), but it appears that to search by Username the entire correct username must be provided? Can the Username search capability be made "fuzzy"? (Hey, I'm sorry, but I can never spell "Cronnolly" correctly!)

    In "View All this User's Posts", could you somewhere add the optional capability to limit the listing to one forum, so I can see, for example, all of LegareColeman's Posts to just Excel?

    Some of these enhancements would help a little when searching for older threads, which I sometimes do when I'm trying to answer a post with a link to an old thread. It would also help when I'm looking at my own posts and don't want to see my numerous ramblings on, say, Scuttlebutt.

    TIA for your thoughts.

    Re: Search

    I'm not ignoring this.
    I'm presently working on a comprehensive UserSearch that should cover most of your points.
