Fixed or Bogus Bugs / [1.x, 2.0] Search with quoted phrases
« by MrPhil on June 25, 2012, 12:17:30 PM »
...... (see http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=479967. ............ #msg3360137)  SMF search is not working as would rationally be expected, ............  when "quoted phrases" are used. For example, Google will search "a  ............  kitten" and match only that phrase (punctuation is  ............ , so a brown-kitten would be matched). SMF will split up  ............  phrase into three words and search for them  ............ , returning far too many results. It will even search for the  ............  'a', which would be excluded as too short if given  ............  quotes: a brown kitten. I admit that this may only be  ............  the "teaser" for the found post, and not which posts are  ............  in the first place, but to have every 'a' in the post highlighted  ............  annoying at the least. I would expect to see only  ............  sequence of words a brown kitten highlighted in the results.  To  ............  what Google does and produce the logical expected  ............ , SMF could still split up a quoted phrase into its individual words and  ............  should highlight only sequences where the words are all present and in order. So, text "a brown............ " would be matched by pattern "a brown kitten". The letter 'a'  ............  be highlighted only if part of a brown kitten.  I'm not sure if SMF is  ............  handling which posts are searched and returned. When  ............  tested this in the Feature Request (link above), it appeared to return  ............  post in that topic with a brown kitten appearing (even though  ............  highlighted all the 'a's). However, when I searched Community  ............  new topic entry, it only returned the post I had just made in that topic. It seems inconsistent.   ............ .S. If I search for "q brown kitten", all quotation marks "  ............  turned into " and are displayed thusly, with the 'q' highlighted.  ............  separate bug. ......

......  you so much! This should help us understand how our site works a lot better. This is a  ............  menu, though. It's a custom one. It's the one like on this page:  http: ............ //xanje.com/index.php?action=pets&sa=show_pet&pet_id= ............   You won't see a menu there but it appears under the box with the  ............  "Cute brown kitten..." it is not an SMF member profile menu.  ............  attached the file that creates it. ......

Feature Requests / Re: 2 character minimum in search

...... , far from disproving my own statement, I backed it up  ............  further trying to prove it: search engine systems still cannot do it reliably  ............  humans intervening and doing it manually!  You're  ............  arguing to agree with what I'm saying: Google and  ............  other systems will quite happily match 'brown kitten' with 'a brown kitten'  ............  they are MORE THAN HAPPY to disregard the 'a' for being  ............  short!  And Google frequently does, in my experience.  ............ , please note that Google runs on a distributed network  ............  the millions of computers, as opposed to a single server that any of us are  ............  a forum on, and that we can't necessarily make it  ............  'smart' as Google given the limited resources we have.. ......
