I had to take out the ALLOWTOPICVIEW because it forced an authentication on the WebChanges and WebRss, rendering the RSS feed invalid.

I added a conditional text to log in in case needed, and I limited the number to 50.

-- PeterThoeny - 20 Jun 2003

I revised the descriptive title, hopefully making it more clear what is actually displayed. I was confused when I looked at this page because I thought it displayed topics in order of my most recent edits but did not see some topics that I remembered editing recently. Looking at the search syntax, I figured out that it actually does a search for topics for which %USERNAME% is listed as having make the most recent revision.

-- LynnwoodBrown - 20 Jun 2003

That's true, it was difficult for me to find a good Topic name and in fact, this topic search is more usefull in Sandbox or Main Webs, were less people collaborate on the same Topic. To make it doing what we expect it to do, we could add an option to Search.pm to tell it to find also in RCS files (%FILES% --> *\.(txt|txt,v) ). This is easy to do but :

  • we may also find RCS structure words,
  • $summary returned will still the one of the last revision, not the good (?) one
  • search would have to list Topics + revision(s) (hard to find a nice way to list)

A real RCSGREP would be wonderfull but in my opinion, it would be too much work for the real need.

Another similar need is to search in a named TOPIC but in all webs (or one web, why not?) So, I can do such things (I'm sure that you will appreciate wink :

TWiki webs in which, you, TWikiGuest, are registered for mail notification :

Number of topics: 1

Number of topics: 1

To do that, I had to use a part of text which only exist in Topic WebNotify. This is not really a nice solution, a better one would be to specify topic name(s) in which I want to search : $topic="WebNotify".

In conclusion, I could change Search.pm to initialize %FILES% with $topic, plus some security check on given text, adding "*\.txt$" or "*\.(txt|txt,v)$" if $RCS="on" option is given.

How do you feel about this ? It could be a nice enhancement of Search.pm without noticeable speed impact. In fact, I do not know how long I will be able to wait before doing it, it's really exiting ;-).

As I recently worked on Search.pm for SearchWithNoPipe, I would be happy to add also these two little features, taking care about the actual high level of code quality and speed of TWiki, as much as I can.

Good work!

I presume you've seen Wikilearn.MyRecentChanges and know that "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery". wink

One suggestion, if you do any of the functions listed above, please consider displaying the results as a definition list as MattWilkie has done over on MyRecentChanges.

IIRC, you have changed the table formatting so the text in the table is left justified (instead of centered) which seems to reduce the overall need for horizontal scrolling, but I still need to scroll horizontally on my 800x600 display.

The text in a defintiion list wraps to the width of the screen as opposed to a table which requires (lots of) horizontal scrolling on my 800x600 display. (And the definition list does look better than the bullets which I tried at first.)

I also:

  • put a <meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow"> at the top of MyRecentChanges page (and took the liberty of adding it here) in an effort to keep it from being indexed by Internet search engines (like Google) — as the content of this page is almost solely a dynamic search, I see no point in indexing it, it just adds "noise" to Google search results
  • copied Peter's (thanks!) login reminder to the MyRecentChanges page

-- RandyKramer - 22 Jun 2003

Added last editing author to the "topics you are involved in" search.

-- MattWilkie - 23 Jun 2003

It would be nice if you could search for previous authors. I'm sure a comment of mine has been refactored out of a topic but I can't remember the name of the topic. I use a search on my home page which looks for my signature but since it's been removed I have no way of finding where it was.

-- SamHasler - 23 Jun 2003

NEW IDEA! Whaoooo ! It works fine now, with history TWiki search added on TWiki smile

You are right, the missing feature of TWiki search was search in history files... I have done it while working on SearchWithNoPipe. So, just upgrade Search.pm and you'll get what we all (I suppose wink ) really wanted to have with : MyEditedTopics

I made the Search.pm available in SearchWithNoPipe, it makes TWiki able to find in RCS files without need of extra power. Just use option scope=history (which stay compatible with previous Search.pm) and, at last, topic MyEditedTopics gives you what we all wanted !
