New Custom Search

Recommended Posts

as you might be able to see above there is a new custom search box on the forums, if you cant see it its because of your adblock, please consider removing our site from adblock as I promise we have no ads on the site, none, zero, zilch so you wont be bombarded by ads if you whitelist TC :). this search box is a combination box that parses all of the TC sites / sections and gives a singular search location for everything at once.

 

You get:

  • the wiki
  • the forums
  • the sourcecode on github
  • the issues on github
  • pull requests on github
  • doxygen docs
  • irc logs from #trinity on rizon

 

 

you can refine your search to specific sections using tabs at top of the results :

the results are labeled and show full URL.

search away and let me know how it goes for you :) it is being improved over time so there might be changes.

Peerblock isn't blocking it. My hosts file blocks a lot of stuff but nothing on this site.

 

Maybe Ghostery is blocking it....

 

Yeah Ghostery was blocking it. Had to disable blocking for Google Ajax Search on this site. :)

Oh shit this is awesome. A search for everything TrinityCore related is something I had in the back of my mind like half a year ago, thanks for this KingPin!

 

One suggestion though: keeping the search terms instead of having the search box go blank on every search. It's painful especially when you searched for a long sentence of criteria and made a typo without saving the criteria. :)

I have had this for a long while but no one knew of it so yeah... thought it was about time I made it public.

 

RE the saving of searched terms, I will look into it :)

When I searched for |Paradox| (in an attempt to see results from irc) I got exactly the same results as Paradox...

because paradox is part of |paradox|, anyhoo if you wish to search just irc search using the tabs.

I like it. I expect to get a lot of use out of it. It's more convenient than going to Google and doing it myself when trying to find solutions to newb questions. Easy is always better.

No, it was ignoring (probably stripping) the | altogether.

^ Exactly

Possibly because there are no words that include pipes so it omitted them out. Most search engines omit words of 3 or less letters anyways by default. Words like: to, and, or, IE booleans.
