I have been hard at work improving the search function for DN.ca

The default is now advanced search and you can search for as little as 3 characters.
So there must be 3 characters before the .ca as well.

If you get a direct hit it will take you directly to the post.

Lots of search improvements have been made, I worked a few days to fine tune this so I hope you enjoy it.
 
Coming soon, it will also highlight your search word within the posts.

I am running into a few technical issues with this but hang tight, I intend to get that working too.

And the word highlight is done, see the pic above where I searched for the word "search"


It will list all the posts with the search word highlighted and you can search down to 3 letters.
It turns the search word in the title to pink and in the body of the post to yellow.




That was a bit of work but well worth it.


Enjoy the advanced search abilities!!
 
Very nice *THUMBSUP*

Just in case anyone is wondering what the new dot beside the title is for...

It means you have posted in that topic.
