organizing Search via CONTENT TYPE


LiquidFractal

Recommended Posts

Right now, when one conducts a site-wide search, one gets a list of search results with an icon at the right specifying the content type (e.g. forums post, blog post, database entry etc).  If there are a lot of results, and one is looking for a specific content type (like all the blog posts dealing with X), then it can be a bit tedious looking through the entire list to round up all the instances of blog posts.

I think it would be great at least to add an option to Sort By Content Type, or even better, in the Search results page, to have a menu allowing the user to dynamically filter out unwanted content types (checkboxes for blogs, forums, databases, gallery items, files etc).

It is, yes, but I was thinking of something that might be a bit more intuitive for some of my more naive members who rarely think to do Advanced searches.  Moreover, even in the Advanced Search dialog it might be nice to be able to choose more than one content type, e.g. if you wanted forums and blog posts but no images or files related to X.
