improve result of searching ( DESCRIPTION), please

Post by lexodes » 2006-04-05 09:30

Hi!
I have one simple proposition (for me and other users it is very important) to improve DC++ . After search a file there are some informations about it like: file name , user, type, size, patch etc , This informations are very useful to choose that file we are looking for, but for me the most important information is DESCRIPTION . But there isn’t this function, what make me very sad :(. Please add option “sort by description” after search .

sorry for my english :wink:

I don't understand Your question, joakim_tosteberg.
In main DC++ window (when we are in some hub) on the right side there is : Nick, shared, description etc. and we can sort by what we want.

After search we can't sort by description. We have local hub in my town, in description we have name of the street we are live in, and i want to sort who is livinig on that same street or near, because the transfer will be the best (up to 10 mb/s)

i don't know if you understand what i mean :(

So you'd basically mash in the user information available in the right corner of the hub screen with the file information when looking at search results. Sounds like TMI to me.

But perhaps implement a "pick a column" function? Like "I don't need to see TTH but I do need to see slots and file name" sorta thing... just like any folder in windows.

Not exactly at the top of my DC++ wish list but... *shrugs*
I want your slot.

User Description doesn't get returned in search results, so there's the hurdle.

Why would you even *want* user description in search results? That makes no sense. Hence I interpreted the original post to mean that the person wants the ability to have descriptions added to files and have these descriptions appear in search results. Some clarification by lexodes would be nice.

Unfortunately, it only makes sense to you. It would be utterly useless for the other 99.999% of DC users, and would just take up extra bandwidth. So, i'd say you'd have to make your own DC++ version with this feature for everyone in your hub.
