( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
In Getting to Super Search, I mentioned that I felt a strong search was essential to the success of PerlMonks as an archived resources (okay, I didn't say it so elegantly).

Today, I thought I remembered something from the infamous "running with scissors" thread, so I went to find it. A super search for: running with scissors gave me a bunch of perlman pages (why?) and the code Running with Scissors (Listing "1 word matched" ???) but not "running with scissors".

So I think we should put some effort into improving Super Search. What kinds of features would be good to add?

  • I'd like to see results sorted by Rep. (Regardless of whether I know the rep, lets not go there again).
  • I'd also like to be able to search posts by author. (If, for example, I remember that chromatic made a good post about typeglobs that had something I specifically wanted, but I don't remember that it was Re: Validating a Code Reference, and I don't want to go through the listing of his 600 nodes, and everyone talks about typeglobs, so a general search isn't as helpful. This happens more often then you think, although that node is a bad example, because it's easy to find)
  • I'd like to not have all the perlman pages show up so often

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
