Advanced search builder concept


1. What advanced search functionality do we want to include?

Two options appear to be: creating a custom search syntax (more challenging to users to understand/learn/utilise) or implementing an itunes-esque search builder (more challenging to manage l10n). JG and MKE feel the itunes-esque search builder to be the better alternative given user-friendliness/expected rate of adoption, especially in view of the site's strong consumer focus.

What do you mean by itunes-esque search ? A "Find As you Type"-style search ? Tbassetto 01:25, 23 August 2006 (PDT)

2. How do we rank/indicate relevance in results?

From our prior discussion, ranking should proceed in two stages: first by location of term, then by rating. Specifically:

First level:

  1. term in Name and Description
  2. term in Name
  3. term in Description

Second level:

  1. Editors' Pick
  2. Great (two star)
  3. Good (one star)
  4. Neutral ('more add-ons')
