The sidebar points now to WebSearchAdvanced
. I suggest to revert that to the simple WebSearch
since users expect a simple Google type search.
Also, the search result of the simple WebSearch
is now on top. I suggest to put that below the search form as it was before since users tend to do refine a search. The current form is vertically tall, too tall to put the search form at the top. However, an earlier version was just right: http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/TWiki/WebSearch?search=help&scope=text&rev=27
hey, dumb idea i know, but why don't we remoce advanced search totally, and move its functionality into a twistie on the one and only search page? having 2 really sux.
I made the simple websearch similar to the ui of the advanced search to present just one interface to the user, but I see the (spacy) downside of this. I can bring the old layout back.
But even then the main problem is the amount of room that the "Search where" block takes and this is not solved with Twisties.
I have put the 3 radio buttons on one line. This saves some space without having a totally different interface. SVN 7128. -- AC
Default is still advanced search. AC
We are catering too much for programmers. The majority of TWiki users do not know what a regular expression is. TWiki's default should be simple, KISS. Google's home is very simple, advanced search is available for those who need it. Don't make me think
I am not disagreeing - I just reopened the bug. The links still have to be updated. -- AC
Done: 7159. AC
