I have just added two new search options:

- Search for private entries aka "[#]"
- Search for public + private entries aka "[@]"

for logged in users only.

This prevents search engines from indexing private entries and makes it easier (I hope) for those of us who finds it difficult to remember arbitrary command line parameters. :D

Cool. Would be nice if we could add a search term as well with the operator.

eg. "[@] my search term"

You can, from the first day that operator came into existence.

You can too, from the search options screen now, if you are logged in.

You're right. It works to an extent.

I just tried:
"[#] flv" - doesn't give me any results, but it should match this: http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1590
"[#] extract" - this gives me some results.

@freakazoid: This has been fixed.

By default, MySQL ignores tokens of length <= 3 during fulltext index/search. I modified the config so that it will include tokens of length 3 and rebuild the FT index.

Very good ... thanks :!:

Just a note to highlight the remarkable mnemonic quality of Andrew's glyph choices: #, i.e., cardinal symbol (AKA sharp?) is a pictorial representation of a grid, thus extremely adequate for searches of objects kept hidden (locked away) by lack of member support; @, the "at symbol" ('arobase' in French or 'arroba' in Spanish/Portuguese; s. Wikpedia) a derivative of the letter 'a', thus making evidential the all inclusive nature of a particular search including it. Well done!

It might be the wrong section/topic to post this, but a search for "everything" (the app) returns no results [as i found out today]

Damn! Look at this page and search for "everything":

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/ ... words.html

Anyway, a quick change to the config file to disable stopwords seemed to have fixed things.

Thanks for reporting this!

Even when I'm not logged in, searches with [@] return me both public and private entries as results.

It is supposed that I should be logged in to get these results, isn't it?
