VanillaForum community have Advanced Search result... is there any special plugin for that ?
This is the best search plugin for Vanilla: https://vanillaforums.org/addon/sphinxsearch-plugin
@R_J Thank you for the help, but I Mean This Dropdown feature....
there is something quite similar with sphinxsearch plugin as suggested above. If you know css you could make it look similar to the community forum look.
Pragmatism is all I have to offer. Avoiding the sidelines and providing centerline pro-tips.
@River thank you For Suggestion .. But It is "Related Discussion Plugin" not a "Search Box "
@Owner: The advanced search comes only with the hosted version of Vanilla.
But we have developed a Search Plugin called "SearchPlus" that extends the regular Vanilla search and might help you.
Here you can see it in action:
Drop me a PM. If you are interested.
@Phreak Its not about advanced search system guys.... its about dropdown search result suggestion
After the user has entered X keys (I would suggest at least 4, if not 5), make a request to your forums search and insert the result into the DOM as a list that you style like a dropdown.
The direct access to your search results is yourforum.com/search?Search=TheSearchTerm
You can restrict the number of results yourforum.com/search/1-4/?Search=TheSearchTerm
And you only get the important view yourforum.com/search?Search=TheSearchTerm&DeliveryType=VIEW
For parsing this in your script you could even get it in a better suited format (JSON) yourforum.com/search?Search=TheSearchTerm&DeliveryType=VIEW&DeliveryMethod=JSON
The SphinxSearch plugin has search suggestions, just not on the search page. When you create a new discussion, typing in the title box brings up search results for related discussions.
You could create a new widget based on /plugins/SphinxSearch/widgets/class.widget.relatedpost.php and style it fit the search results.
