Codoforum V 1.2 released

Avinash D' Silva on the 01 Jun 2014 in update

Today, after weeks of development and testing, we are proud to announce the release of the new version of codoforum V 1.2

After completing the basic features of a forum, we are now moving on to add some advanced features.

One of them is our new search feature .

Advanced Search

Basic search parameters

  • - To exculde a string from search
  • category To search in categories (comma separated)
  • sort
  • order

But the actual search string can have

  1. "-" i.e exclude operator
  2. AND to make sure two or more keywords exist together
  3. OR to make sure any of these keywords exist

for eg.

  • dog -cat will search for dog not including cat
  • dog OR cat -bat will search for posts containing dog or cat but will exclude bat
  • dog AND cat -rat will search for posts containing dog and cat in the same post but exclude rat

All other search parameters are provided as POST data for simplicity

By default , when two search terms are separated by a space i.e cat dog It is considered as AND .
So cat dog rat is equivalent to cat AND dog AND rat

For advanced options, you can have a look at the file codoforum/sys/Lib/Search/Search.php
