LiveSearch 1.1

edited October 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Ok.. I was bored and created this small extension. It adds a LiveSearch box to the panel. Depending on which page you are (discussions, comments or users) it will search automatically for the right type. If you have any suggestions put them here :)

    Heck yea, thats a sweet add-on. That's what I love about this platform of message board/forums software. You have the ability to add-on different abilities and options for the user. You almost feel special (as the administrator and user) when you install a brand-new add-on. Well, thats the experience I've been having all this weekend.

    Thanks again to Mark for the wonderful, easy-to-install and easy-to-use software! :-)

    Sweet Add-on, works great.. my only concern is that some users might get confused... most people see a search box and type whatever they are looking for being in the Topics, Comments, or Users. It would be great if the user were able to choose what kind of search it is... so basically same as the vanilla search, but with the "live" feature, and on the left column. GOod work though!

    That can be arranged :) I've made it to auto-select the type, but it's easy to implement the radio-button-thingies :)

    That would rock!

    Jazzman - What may be better to do is have the "change search type" options in a drop-down box. Perhaps when clicking the search icon (magnifying glass)?
    Having the radio boxes causes it to take up so much room on what is becoming a rather cluttered panel. And the hide feature doesn't work.

    I think radio buttons, or maybe a dropdown menu would be great! Really it's the only reason I haven't installed it yet.
  • Options
    Yeah, I will think of a nice option on how to select the search type :)

    Why it doesn't work? http://www.andreapaiola.it/forum/ I've just debug javascript but in doesn't work

    Your forum search works for me (with Opera 9).
  • Options
    Maybe it doesn't work only with Firefox? Yes with Opera 9 works well.
  • Options
    If the Firefox extension Firebug is active the live search doesn't work because there are errors... now I try to correct them
  • Options

    Ok, I found a bug... when I was developing, I was doing it on a windows machine.... so I made a case-sensitivity error:

    In the livesearch.js check the last line:
    window.onload = livesearchInit;
    should be:
    window.onload = liveSearchInit;

    @Jazzman,

    Not sure if that was pointed at me, but I fixed the line nonetheless, and am still experiencing the same problem.

    thanks.
