I far prefer the collapsed view with a topics list when I'm doing a search.

Clearly there are those who want an "expand all" feature and those of us who'd also prefer to be able to expand only the topic or topics we wish to do that for.  An "expand all" button should be fairly easy to implement and would just show what comes up by default now.

I generally know the topic I'm looking for once I see it and always use the "collapse topics" feature immediately when search results are returned.  I'm the flip side of those who want to look at messages only, which I find exceedingly tedious when I generally recognize a topic once it's been brought back into view and, thus, into my memory.

moderated Mid-Year Groups.io Update - about time for another one

 

Mark,

I was searching for something and stumbled on last year's message. Is it time again for a half-year in review?

I know you've got quite a few kettles on the fire at the moment, but when would you not?

If that expansion must be done on a per-topic basis, rather than
expanding all results with one click, that would be a dealbreaker for me.

Excellent.

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking. If you want to know why it's a dialog box for search instead of just a text field, that's so that things fit better on smaller screens.

Sur about this? I have a smaller screen. Example of text field http://www.warhammer-forum.com/

I was assuming it would be all results with one click. Per topic would be a dealbreaker for me, too. I also agree about the snippet showing the context. That's more than 50% of what makes the search useful for me. I'll go further and say search is practically useless without it.

Mark,

I would make it so that you could 'expand' each result and see the
individual message matches per topic.
If that expansion must be done on a per-topic basis, rather than expanding all results with one click, that would be a dealbreaker for me.

The snippet in context (search target in bold with a small amount of surrounding text) is an extremely useful aid to rapidly "eyeball filter" the results, looking for the instance in mind. Having search results that present at once only a fraction of all the matches would defeat that ability.

I would find it extremely tedious and frustrating to have to individually open topics to see which one might contain the particular instance of the search target I'm looking for.

For me, the collapsed view is my preference anyway. Once I find a topic that is close to what I'm looking for, I open it in another tab to see the individual messages. I'm hoping that with the upgrade, we'll also be able to do an exact match type search, including strings of numbers/letters (01P or 733 to find 01P927733CM).

Thanks,
Duane


moderated Re: Potential search change

 

Mark,

So this would just be changing the default? We could still see both views (individual message and topic), but with the new way, we'd get the collapsed view first and then expand, as opposed to getting the expanded (individual message) view first and then collapse? I don't have a strong opinion about this, except that I might find that in practice it's a PITA not to see the individual messages first, which is what I usually want to see. (I have that issue now with the message list as a whole. It always defaults to topics.) So it might be one extra click for people who prefer seeing the individual messages first. But at this point it doesn't sound like a dealbreaker.

moderated Potential search change

 

Hi All,

I'm working with a consulting group to upgrade the search cluster and improve search results. Right now there are two ways of viewing search results: 

- the default view, which shows subject matches and then message body matches
- the 'collapsed topic' view, which shows one result per topic, regardless of how many messages within that topic match

The collapsed topic view basically mimics Gmail search.

I am thinking about removing the existing default view, and only having the collapsed topic view. Also, I would make it so that you could 'expand' each result and see the individual message matches per topic.

Please let me know if you have a strong opinion one way or the other.

Thanks,
Mark

I think he wants to know why all sorts of variations are found with search instead of exact matches. You also can't search for something in the middle of a word.

About Search button, I don't understand why you can't write directly the search words?!

In order to forward to another group, you'd need to use your email program when you receive the post. I don't think it would be a good idea to be able to forward from within a group due to the possible abuse.
