    [Google Code] How to search in D3scene, when search function doesn't find

    If a user on D3scene wants the public maphack for Warcraft 3 version 1.25b, what does he do? Normally posting unnecessary gief-h4x-pl0x-threads in wrong sections.
    Other users, who have a brain, use the search function. But mostly it isn't good enough. Also the search engine in our forum searches only in the list of all posted threads, but not for example visitor messages and so on.
    Well, let me explain now how to SEARCH something on D3scene!

    What you need?
    - Brain.
    - Nothing more, really.

    So let's go ahead:

    What's the most famous Search Engine?
    Of course, Google.



    Now you, normal mortal Google-users, search with keywords like "d3scene", "maphack", "1.25b" etc.
    We, the god-like-Google-users, search with the Google Code. Probably you have been hearing of it already. But now, I explain you how to use it to find something on D3scene.com.

    For example we search for me. We write "Advisory" in the D3scene search function. What do we find? Plenty threads or posts with the title "Advisory".



    Now we search in Google. Of course there are many results (about 100 Mio.), because of my name (not something special and can be found everywhere).



    That's why we search with some extra features to get some exact results on D3scene.


    So we use the code
    Code:
    site:d3scene.com
    to define where we can find the the word (in this case "Advisory") on exactly this site. It limits the search radius from the whole web (except deep web) to the domain d3scene.com.

    What we will find when we search for it ( Advisory site:d3scene.com ) are mostly pages on D3scene with the name Advisory (I hope you get it until here).




    Okay! That's the half Google code.


    Now we want to specify it more. We want search for something like "Advisory is cool" or instead of cool we will add awesome or even immature, I don't care.

    You should be aware of the search in Google with quotes ( " " ). Everytime you search in Google without quotes, Google searches for the exactly same words, but not in the exact same order you wrote it up!

    Now back to topic again.

    How can you know, that somebody wrote exactly this word (cool)? You can't. That's why we replace the "cool" with an asteriks ( * ). That allowes you to search for any word that is instantly after "is".




    What we could add now is a specific word in an url. But with the normal words you type into Google you can't find a specific URL which contains the word.

    So how we can do it then?
    Easy-peasy.

    We just add
    Code:
    inurl:users
    Our search-google-code for now would be then
    Code:
    "Advisory is*" site:d3scene.com inurl:members
    We search for a text that contains "Advisory is .." on the site D3scene.com which should have a sub-site with the URL " .. members .. ".



    We get less and less results.

    But mostly we find useless things. If we see that there are many results that matches with the same word, you don't want, you can simply ban it from the search list.
    A minus would do it ( - ). You should not have a space between the minus and the word you want to ban.

    "....." -word

    In this case it is "offline" and "online".
    So we add it now to our code.


    Code:
    "Advisory is*" site:d3scene.com inurl:members  -offline -online
    and so we got only one entry :p



    hihi, thanks Tyl!

    That's how Google works and you can combine this code with your stuff.
    Maybe it will change your way to search something on D3scene. But actually it's for those who want a simple maphack here.



    Thanks for reading, I hope the thread gets stickied or whatever. It's important to all users.
    And always:
    I hope I helped you blabla bla^^

    special thanks to Henk Van Ess [The Google Code].
