    Just upgraded to vB 5.2.6 and installed the latest Search Module That Rocks v1.1 here. See test event in the Latest Topics module on homepage and notice that the forum name is there..

      Installed this mod fine, no probs. But there's no instructions on how to configure the settings for this module and there's lots of settings, at that.

      It's past midnight here, so I'll leave this one until tomorrow (or later today, in fact).

      Love the mods I've installed so far!

        It's exactly using the same settings as the default Search module.

          I'm about to buy this, but one thing I'd like to know is if it's possible to also show a "Read" status on recent posts. I'd like to do a recent posts module that also shows whether you've seen it or not.

          Would this be possible?

            Good to hear. Thanks for the great mod. Makes vb5 more usable.

            You're welcome. Got it installed on the test forum to get used to the settings. If you get that read indicator added at some point that will make it pretty much perfect. Site upgrade is soon, I've got butterflies.

            The settings are exactly identical as the default Search module.

            Oh I know. I got it to do the same things as the default one easily enough.

          I'm having a bit of trouble getting the search just right. Here's my JSON.

          Code:
          {"date":{"from":"14"},"type":["vBForum_Gallery","vBForum_Link","vBForum_Poll","vBForum_Text"],"channel":{"param":"channelid"},"sort":{"lastcontent":"desc"},"view":"activity","exclude":"6","exclude_type":["vBForum_PrivateMessage"]}
          When I use this query, I end up with the latest reply to a given topic in descending order. Except that It doesn't include a bunch of topics that should be there. If I drop the 'activity' from the view query I get all the results I expect in roughly the right order. The exception is with a thread started and replied to. The starter is displayed above the reply for some reason.

          What I'm trying to achieve (and had until vb decided to reset my homepage for some reason.) Is a reverse cron display that shows only the latest posts in a given thread. Any insight you might be able to provide would be appreciated.

          Thanks.

            That sounds like the issue Mark.B was referring to, which will be fixed in vB 5.3.1.

              Hm... So then if I'm filtering to 14 days and the thread is older than that but a reply has been posted in it, it may not pick up that post? That's a **** of a weird bug.

                Just wanted to follow up on this and confirm that it is in fact, a really weird bug. With "view":"activity" in your query replies to a thread will only show up if your date range encapsulates the thread's 'start' date. In our case, we have a thread that's been going on for more than a year. Replies to it will only appear if the from date goes past its creation.

                Thought some of you guys might find this helpful.

              So now that I found out how to use prefixes... in your search mod here in your forum you can see the prefixes when hovering over the small icon left to the title... is this build in your search mod or just modified for your forum here? I am asking because you did not mention it in the introduction of this mod.

              The official vb5 search now shows the forum names... but not the prefix Thats why I am now looking for a way to display it.

                I didn't add the prefix as it was there before in the default Search Module. If it's not there anymore then it's a bug. I just customized the style of the prefix on this site using custom css.

                  oooh I´m sorry. I just tested it.. no its not a bug maybe? I just found out that I can see it in compact view... but not standard (which we are using on main homepage)

                #41
                Sad that IB or vB integrates all interesting and good modules as a standard in vB5. Don't know since when, but in 5.3.2 there is a badly implementation of this great module.
                Couldn't say if channel is the right name for a forum/ categorie in english but channel = kanal (in german) isn't it exactly. It means more likely a tv-channel, sewer, canal or a drain.
                Your implementation didn't needs a translation because in german it named also in 'categorie'! Great work
                Not that they haven't a lot of improvement jiras there are no mods out there right now... still nearly no own ideas and implementations

                Thanks for your great work glenn!

                  I don't like the way vB implemented the channel name in the Search module. I mentioned that in the 5.3.2 discussion thread and suggested this mod.

                  https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/foru...33#post4374833

                  As expected, they asked me to create a JIRA. Why can't they do it right the first time especially for a simple thing like this? And then rely on customers to create enhancement requests for the half-baked stuff they did?

                    Hi, how can I update this module in VBulletin?
                    Currently I am using version 1.0 which I purchased, is the update 1.2 also included? If so where can I download it?
                    Thanks for your help.
