A COMPREHENSIVE NEWS POST FOR THOSE THAT DON'T READ SOME OF THE GREAT FEATURES WE HAVE.

THIS IS HOW OUR SEARCH TORRENT / BROWSE WORKS!


Here's the details on the search controls today.


+ operators join words into phrases.
- operators exlude words from the search, and can be used with + operators to create exclusion phrases.

If you don't use operators, you match on words only.

Some Examples : we have as our target
#1 painkiller.jane.115.ws.dsr.xvid-sys.avi
#2 painkiller.jane.110.dsr.xvid-notv.avi


Painkiller Jane would match Painkiller Jane and Jane Painkiller and Jane the big Painkiller - anything with the words painkiller and jane.
So we would find both one and two above

Painkiller+Jane would match Painkiller Jane but not match Jane Painkiller or Jane the big Painkiller
So we would find both #1 and #2 above

Jane+Painkiller would match Jane Painkiller but not match Painkiller Jane or Jane the big Painkiller
So we would not find either #1 or #2 above

Painkiller+Jane -110 would match Painkiller Jane but not match Painkiller Jane 110 or Jane the big Painkiller
So we would only find only #1 above

Painkiller+Jane -115+ws would match Painkiller Jane and would also match Painkiller Jane 110
So we would only find #2 above.

Finally +painkiller -jane would find nothing. The leading + is not really needed - it effectively has nothing to join with it.

Remember this feature can also be used to search for a list of files and exclude a format so you could search all the dsr and exclude x264.

I hope that explains the new search a bit - if you think in term of using + to join words into phrases, and - into excluding words or phrases joined with +, I think it makes sense.
