I think, we just have a bug with fragments currently - I've explained which way it was planned, and it will be implemented this way in the next subrelease. Everything another stays the same. Yes, maybe we will just add to manual something about ~brackets~.

I'm not sure where "~" must be put. In all cases the fragment to be limited by it at both sides, or only at the place of the missing part of the word?

For example, I search "flower" by the fragment "flow". What I must write:

~flow~

or

flow~

I suppose that in any case I have to write ~flow~, right?

Yes, write on both sides, won't work if only on one.

this was the matter of speed.

That sounds logical, thanks for explaining.

Now I know how it should work, it seems it does.
Team because by fragment it was meant, for example, fragment of the word FROM THE BEGINNING.
I get relults like "options" when searching "option".

When there is a caracter in front, it won't pop-up. This also counts for caracters like ([{.,-/_. That's why I'm missing the url's in my search (like http://option and www.option ).

Maybe that's something to think about. I don't see any other bug with fragments.

I want to inform you that now, without any fixes, my search machine works with fragments without any bug, and in addition - without any "~", and in addition - in Cyrillic!

I only read you, but couldn't remember if I tested it with fragments of words, or not, and tested now.

I only wrote литера, which is the first part of the word литература - "literature". After 5 seconds there was found 51 topics, containing the whole word литература. The same happened with other words in Cyrillic. The same in Latin. I typed esse and received 5 messages Esse'x and essential. I haven't used "~" at all.

I'm sorry, but I cannot say that at me your "bug" exists. There is no bug with the fragments of words. May be you have to check your Windowses :))) I checked the problem with IE and even with Opera - no problem.

We haven't fixed anything, it's an old script as it was. ~ thing was invented directly for searching the real fragments (incl. those in URLs and other parts of words). In most cases, search mechanism should work - but we will release search log soon, which will show what people are looking for, maybe it will give some ideas more.

I still cannot understand. I write only the first part of an English word and the search script finds the word. After that I write only the first part of a Bulgarian word and the search script finds the word. I don't write anything else, no ~, nothing. The search module works fine with parts of words with no additional signs, code etc.

What are these other "real fragments", nevermind in text, in URLs, or elswhere? And what is "search log", please? :)

You understand, I'm only afraid that the good script might become bad from much efforts to improve it :)))

Later:

Yes, after more testing I understood - "~" is needed when the fragment is in the middle of the word, right? Or?

Correct, in the middle or at the end, like the "~option~" -> "adoption" result.

_Marco's right. Search log will be as a plugin, won't touch the main core.

Yes, the search script works fine as long as you use fragments of the left-most part of the word / the beginning of the word.

True fragments all appar if you use ~ before and after.

any you know the saying: "If it aint broke, then don't fix it"

Maby there could be a message in the search table saying (Use ~ before and after true fragments, f.inst. ~shaggydog~ when looking for www.shaggydog.com) or something... ???

regards,

Yes, probably we'll put this kind of message.
