Search producing individual postings are essential b.o. many girls having several aliases/pseudonyms. By clicking 'show post' you can be put on right track.
That's true as well. I suppose we have 2 usage cases here. What you're saying is, when you type Inez (Femjoy's name for Met's Inna C), you don't want to wade through Inna C's thread, which is 9 pages (180 posts) long. You want the "show post" feature to take you straight to the relevant post within the thread. What I'm saying is, when you type Inna, you don't want to wade through 16 pages (455 posts). You want the threads only. You want Inna C's thread listed once, not 180 times. What would be really nice is to have the choice: return individual postings or threads.
Sophisticated search criteria can be used with Peachy search as well. If you type inna C met-art you get less results but more on-topic.
In short I would say the present Peachy searchtool is pretty good maybe even perfect....
Good... yes. Perfect... no.
Example: try searching for one of Met's "minor" Innas, e.g. Inna F. Type inna: you get 455 hits, 16 pages. I'm not going through wade through that, so next I try inna F. Still 455 hits. That's because any post that has the character F in it satisfies the F part of the search criteria. Next try inna F met. Still 395 hits, 14 pages. Next try inna F met-art. This time I get "only" 6 pages (152 hits). Rather than wading through those, I turn to google and type "inna F" site:peachyforum.com. This returns just 3 hits, exactly the ones I'm looking for.
The main thing that google can do and that Peachy's advanced search can't is "match exact phrase". Peachy has "match all words", but not "match exact phrase". As a result, I still use google a lot to search peachy. The main advantage of Peach's native search facility is that, unlike google, it's always 100% up-to-date. There are secondary advantages (e.g. filter by date / author / tag), but in practice I don't use them a lot.
Don't get me wrong. It's great to have a search feature. Keep up the good work.
