[MBS] Feature request :)
Date: 10.04.12 20:11 (Tue, 10 Apr 2012 15:11:15 -0400)
From: Louis
I was looking up some information on MBS site about a specific function and
it occurred to me that the RS plugin is now so huge, it has become a bit
hard to find the information we're looking for.

We can look up for stuff using the Plugins list, but it's not always obvious
in which plugin is what I'm looking for.

Like now, I'm looking for a screen function on Windows... Should I look in
the Windows plugin, or...

And there's a search function. That could be perfect, except that it's
Google search. So, it first returns ads (I could have bought a cheap
monitor, but it wasn't exactly what I was after :) )

And then it lists slightly more relevant stuff, but often not in the context
we're looking for.

I was in the RealStudio page, and the search results kept returning links
about FileMaker screen functions...

I ended up finding what I was looking for, but I just thought I'd let you
know, in case this can be improved.

It's not a big problem, not even a bug, but I'll put as "feature
request" an improved and more contextual search.

Louis

Sounds like an opportunity for a Real Studio Web App. ;-)

Our google search goes over all our websites. Maybe to much, but for site search I put the documentation on an extra domain. This way you can search it with google's site command.

so put this the goggle search box for example:

screen windows site:monkeybreadsoftware.net
