Forum full-text search goes live! There is a link along the top of your forums that says "Search." It has two available modes, controlled by whether you have the "Exact?" check box checked.

If you do not have the "Exact" check box checked, GuildPortal will find posts that match what you type in, but it will also find posts that match based on the meaning of what you have typed in.

If you do have the "Exact" check box checked, GuildPortal will find posts that match what you type in. In addition, you can use operators in your query. For example:
  • "bad monkeys" (note the use of quotes with phrases) would return posts where "bad" and "monkeys" appeared right next to each other.
  • "bad" AND "monkeys" would return posts where "bad" and "monkeys" appeared, regardless of whether they are next to each other.
  • "war*" OR "ever*" would return posts with "warcraft" or "warhammer" or "everquest" or "everquest2" in them.
  • "warcraft" or "everquest" would return posts with either "warcraft" or "everquest" in them.
  • "war*" OR "ever*" AND NOT "everquest2" would return posts with "warcraft" or "warhammer" or "everquest" in them, but not those with "everquest2" in them.
You can also do searches for a particular author, whether or not you specify anything to search for in the subject/body of the posts.
