    How to search

    I have a couple of questions on how to do a search in the Lounge:

    1- How do I search for "DIR " (DIR with a space after it)? I want to search for DIR without finding things like directory. If I search for DIR I find directory. If I search for "DIR" I don't find anything even though I know there are message containing DIR.

    2- How do I search for a word only in post that I have submitted. In this case, I am looking for "DIR " in my own posts only.

    3- Same as question 2, only in posts by another particular lounger.

    Those options were under development by our previous admin, but as far as I know, that script never reached production readiness. I'm not familiar with the back-end database (MySQL), so I don't know how long it would take, and what the performance penalty might be, to implement those changes. But they certainly would be welcome. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    I've just fixed the search engine. Try "Entire Phrase" as a search option and search for "dir" in this forum and you'll see that "directory" is no longer highlighted / matched...
    Cheers, Claude.
