Searcing the Forum
« on: September 02, 2010, 01:17:42 PM »
Is it possible to add the "Whole Words Only" or "Parts of Words" option to the search?  That is what the search for the HBD Brews & Views uses, and it allows you to exclude words you don't want.  For example, when I search for the word "sour", the results include any word that has those letters in it - like "source", "resource", "outsource", etc.  If I put "sour" in quotes, I get the same result, and if I put " sour " (with spaces before and after the word), I still get the same results.

If there is an easy way to do this that I am missing, please let me know.  Thanks!

It doesn't look like the software allows that.  Maybe Drew or Fred will see something I missed.

Looks like we'll have to install a mod.

I'll push it forward.

Actually, we could force the search to be whole word match, but that would be the only option at the moment short of that mod.
