Support » Plugins » Page Search PLEASE

  • OK, this is a very touchy subject for me. Now that a new rewrite system has been introduced in WP 2.0 that doesn’t rape the server when you have many pages, a whole new range of possibilities is open to webmasters. Me, for one thing, I am now working on a game database site that will use pages as main information holders. This will mean hundreds of pages. Yet there’s only one problem: how to search them?

    Currently, there is no good page search plugin. The ones we have find stuff that people didn’t search for (this especially applies to sites using non-latin characters), don’t paginate search results (imagine if I search for word ‘platform’ that will be on almost every single one of the pages on my site), show entire page in results (this make viewing results a pain), and so on.

    This is why I am writing here in hopes that somebody might write one. Suggested features (as mentioned above):

    – Quality Page Search, that will fully support non-latin characters
    – Paginating search results
    – Ability to choose number of results per page in options
    – Cutting off results after so and so many characters (can be settable in options)
    – Support for feed output
    – Clean integration with current search system
    – WP 2.0 support of course 🙂

    Anyway, hope this will encourage some of the coders in the community to write a plugin like this. There will be a lot of demand for it.
