Advanced Live Search

M 2006-02-08 08:41:47 2706
Could tidy up the live search area and make it so that it appears to be a list like :
     Advanced Live search
       (*) Tags
       (  ) Titles
       (  ) Groups
       (  ) Authors
       (  ) About Url
       (  ) Text of item
       (  ) Text of comment




not a bad idea ...

I want to feature the live search ... move it to the top ... out of the tags column.  This is an important feature and a very useful one.  We should feature it more.  I use it literally all the time.  To get more space for it, one thing we could possible give up would be the Greeting in the river. I never look at that.  Do you?

Any other major screen revisions while were at it?

Well the greeting thingy disappeared some time ago & I forgot to notice it returned until a couple of days ago.
I used to use it a lot to find out who I was as an author. I have gotten into the habit of just hitting the home button to find that tasty bit of info.

I'm thinking of putting a shorter version of it top right of the screen.  Maybe make it so that it scrolls down with the screen and always stays in the right hand column.  That would free up some space on the top of the river, at least.

Somehow a newbie needs to know that the lefthand column of tags is not all there are and that that is only the top 50 or so & if they need more they should use the search box.

Notice I also added groups to the find list. The keyword search for a group could include keywords in the title, header and/or tags - all you need to know is that the thing is a group.

Notice I added some more that i have wanted. Since this is tending to explode we need to consider the footprint that it will have on the screen. I think this should all go on a searate window called Advanced Search. Then we can keep a small footprint for the most usual search which is only the tag shearch. I rarely use the title search.
If we had a good way to search for groups I would also recommend it.  Right now the way to search for groups in the .groups tag sucks! (unless you are thinking of getting rid of groups). I would suspect that very few groups are mentioned with that tag. One problem in the footprint is where the suggest list displays.
