  • Different interface for searching

    I have a slightly differnt perspective in mind for the use of a vB board...

    I'd like to have a different interface for the board than the default 'drill down by category'

    Ideally I'd design a system that can do a concatenated search on a series of terms that search particular tables in the DB.

    Could I query the Vb database inthis way whilst retaining the capacity for users to then post replies in the normal way to the search results?

    If further clarification is needed please let me know!

    If your custom code only gets the details from the table, then I don't see why it won't allow users to normally post and search index to normally grow.

    It just depends on how you code your .php and how it modifies the table. For obvious reasons we can't provide support for custom code.
