  • Search: Can I do partial matching on posted picture URLs?

    Hi guys,

    A lot of my members post pictures as URLs (not uploaded to my server), and the other members would like to search on part of a URL to find all posts that contain this partial URL. This was possible before when we used UBB, but I don't seem to know how to do this in vBulletin 3.6.7.

    ie.
    a search for "/1985/05/"


    should return all posts that contain images with that string in the URL:


    [ IMG ]http://www.mysite.com/members/playmates/files/1985/05/pics/01.jpg [ / IMG ]

    [ IMG ]http://www.mysite.com/members/playmates/files/1985/05/pics/020.jpg[ / IMG ]

    [ IMG ]http://www.mysite.com/members/playmates/files/1985/05/pics/035.jpg[ / IMG ]

    Thanks

    You can search for phrases like that if you use the fulltext search engine:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Search Type

    Just use quotes to enclose the phrase:

    "blah blah"

        does this work only if the boolean search is enabled?
        Thanks

          Yes, the group must have that permission:

          Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Edit Usergroup -> Can Use Boolean Search

          This only shows if fulltext is enabled in the other section.
