I have at least two ideas (I may have more that haven't surfaced yet, lol) for the searching function:

#1: make the search terms stay in the box at the top when it displays the search results. It is so frustrating to search for "crochet diaper cover" and then have to go back and type "crochet diaper cover -swap" and then go back again and add more to it...It would just be really nice if the text stayed there.

#2: "exclude swap" checkbox for the search bar. It would be really nice to be able to search for something and not have it come up with 19 swaps where that something is a suggested item, before it shows any actual posts about that sort of item.

any other suggestions?

for #2 you can always just go to the advanced search and uncheck the swap boards so they won't show up.

We need to do some work on the search functionality for sure! Smiley Thanks for this suggestion. I'll file it away for when we do improve the search.

omgosh, something amazing just happened.  I wanted to search for something but as usual I didn't want to include the swaps.  So I expanded "Choose a board to search in, or search all" and figured I'd try to click on the link that said "Organized Craft Swaps" just for the hell of it.  It unchecked every swap board!  Shocked  For pete's sake, I'm a bit of a heavy user  Wink and I didn't know that would work! Cheesy  So anyway, that's almost what you're looking for!  Not exactly one click but WAY easier than unselecting everything.

Oh man, it's silly how excited I am about this.  Cheesy

Hey there! We've just taken all swap related boards out of the boards that are automatically searched! You can still easily search for swaps just by ticking "include swap threads". Otherwise, they shouldn't show up! Smiley
