Feature Proposal: Offer ability to return a named SECTION in FormattedSearch


With the implementation of NamedIncludeSections (see details here) in Dakar, it seems like a logical extention of this feature to return a specified section for topics found in a FormattedSearch.

Description and Documentation

I imagine simply the variable $section(name) which returns the section "name".


Suppose one has a CategoryCategory called "CategoryPolicies" that has a SECTION defined which was called "policy_summary." One could define a FormattedSearch that searched for all policies that returned the summary sections.

Impact and Available Solutions

Shouldn't this be implemented as enhancement of $summary in the light of a future TopicObjectModel?

Hmmm. I haven't reviewed TopicObjectModel in a while and don't know the status of that, but I see using this feature not just for the topic summary. I would like the ability to return any defined section.

how about this, as a workaround:

              format="$percntINCLUDE{\"$topic\" section=\"sectionname\"}$percnt

This is a useful enhancement, it is also KISS because admins do not need to use a regex pattern to get the text of a named section.
