This weekend I started with a complete OO rewrite of the search page.  
This comes after finally becoming disgusted with maintaining the code.  
Right now I have a fairly straightforward search.class.php file that is 
about 70% complete.  I'm currently having fun debugging template issues 
which prevent plugins from printing the results that were found.  After 
that I will tackle story searches and comment searches.  I'm hoping to 
have a beta version in CVS by the end of the week.  Next week I hope to 
have the full text search code implemented along with bugfixes to the 
highlighting code.

While I think we all will appreciate the new code, regression testing this 
will be a bit of work.  Just a heads-up.

Finally, I noticed that stories can have abbreviated or complete results 
shown per a config.php option.  Shouldn't the Plugin API be updated to 
account for this?  Because this is a config.php option, we may not need to 
update the API but rather inform all plugin developers of the option 
should they decide they want to make use of it.

tony at tonybibbs.com  hunt or fish often see those of us who do as      
                    harmlessly strange and sort of amusing. When you  
                    think about it, that might be a fair assessment."
