7.5.10 Progress Report: Waldo, We Finally Found You!

Changelog 2015-02-01
• Search page has been simplified. The information on the page hasn't changed, its just been split up slightly different than before. These slight adjustments make it easier to navigate and definitely make it less daunting to an unseasoned user.
• The search forum list has been adjusted from only showing 10 forums. It now shows 16 within the window. It's more of a simple cosmetic update that your members will probably appreciate having. It also should make things easier for them to narrow their searches to a specific forum or group of forums.
• Search now matches "ALL Keywords" by default. Previously it would just match "ANY keywords" - if you had a list of "Green Ninja Turtles," results with only "Green" could be displayed -- even if the other two words were not found. Now, all items must be in the result for it to be a hit.
• "Search Body Only" has been broken for many years. Its now fixed.
• "Search Titles Only" now searches only the titles of the first post in a thread. Previously, it would search topic-titles and all reply-titles - often leaving your search result pages filled with one single topic and a bunch of "Re: " replies.
• In search, if "Show a preview of post body with results" was checked on, it would display the first 256 characters of the post and then leave you hanging. An ellipsis (...) has been added to the end. Now your readers will know that there is more. A very minor and a purely cosmetic update.

General, non search related stuff
• The Control Panel is still getting dusted off and its looking better every day! smile
• Plenty more empty lines and blank remarks have been cleaned up from the source code.

NOTICE: At the time of this post, UBB.threads 7.5.10 is very much still work in progress. This current code will change several more times before being published to the Members area of http://ubbcentral.com. This *WORK IN PROGRESS* code is not available for download or purchase. This series of progress reports is being made public to share the development progress on UBB.threads. Items may be pulled from the final release or may be reworked to have a different presentation than what is depicted in this post. This is very much WORK IN PROGRESS and not by any means "final."

when you get the search results for Green Ninja Turtles
will it highlight the search terms now?
Before, a single word search would highlight just that word.
But a multiple word search would not highlight anything.
Also would we still need to surround Green Ninja Turtles with quotes like
"Green Ninja Turtles" as before.

Ruben, thanks for adding that clarification -- Things are all fixed and working as you would expect.

Single word searches highlight just that one word.
Multi-word searches will highlight all the words that match those words.
