    Yeah I think that is better.


    Yes I noticed that if you put your keyword in 2 or 3 of those sub-categories at the same time, you actually get fewer results than if you input only one. Or you might get 0 which would make it look like it isn't working. But with multiple inputs, it is giving, I think you would call it, the Boolean Intersection of the 2 or 3 categories you have input to, which is kind of strange.

    That might be an idea though. If this thing can do a Boolean Intersection between different mod fields, then maybe it can do a Boolean Union. If it can, then maybe you could add 1 more item to that list that now has 10 items in it, under Advanced Field Search. That 1 more item would be "Specs & Mods" and it would search all the mod fields and give you the Boolean Union. It would be the 6th item in the list, right below "Build Type".
    That might give you some duplicate entries (when people list a mod in more than one category). Still pretty good though.

    Maybe the main idea is that if this thing is doing a Boolean intersection between different mod fields in a single search, that means it actually is searching multiple mod fields at once. It would be really cool if we could add that 1 more category that would do it.

    Appendix: (LOL)
    Searching "GM MAF"
    in Mods Bolt On -- 360 profiles
    in Mods Engine -- 10 profiles
    in Mods EMS and Logging -- 172 profiles
    in Mods Bolt On + Mods EMS and Logging -- 18 profiles
    in all three Mod categories -- "no items to display".

    ok, thanks. i understand. I gave this new search another trial run tonight and some bugs i pointed out were worked out. The new search is such a huge improvement over the old/present search that I am happy with what it is now. One can accomplish what I suggested with working to the final results with search within next search. And that appears to be the consensus here.

    However, if I should ask for one or two improvements, it would be
    (1) a search by selecting from a pull-down menu/list of available tags; thus, adding another search field;
    (2) a search by selecting from a pull-down menu/list of available prefixes. At the present time it's guess work... by typing letters of alphabet one can work his way to the desired prefix but a complete pull down list would be nice.
    thanks for getting at least this much done and making it available to us

    I've made the test search feature live. I'm closing this thread now and will open a new one for all requests and issues with the new functionality.
