Search for Pictures
    #3182584 - 09/26/04 03:18 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I find that when I'm searching for a pic someone posted a long time ago, I have to wade through all kinds of posts to find one. I was thinking that in the search function, there could be a box we check to only search for posts with pictures in them.

I briefly looked into this, it's a good idea. The most straightforward way of accomplishing it would be to basically do a search for the text [image in all a user's posts. Unfortunately, this would return messages even if the only image was a smiley or in the user's signature. We could parse the messages to exclude these images from search, but this would add significant overhead and require a different search mechanism. Maybe another admin can come up with a clever way of doing this but my guess is there's no easy way to add it with the way the BB currently stores messages.

Thanks for the suggestion though!

it would be cool to expose the filenames of user's photos.

then you could search for a portion of that string in posts.

if the user has posted the image, it will come up.

if it is private and has not been publicly posted, then it will
not show up in searches.

for private images, exposing the name of the image shouldn't
be too much of a breach for users.

really, I think it would be awesome to publish user's *public*
images such that you could click a link on their profile page to
be taken to an image gallery of all uploaded images they have
marked public.

Maybe add a parameter to the search criteria placing bounds on the size of the messages we're searching for. If the size of the message includes the data of the image file, then generally, messages with images larger than gremlins will be significantly larger than messages with no images or only gremlins. This idea is even more effective now that we have a restriction on the size of signature images.

I'm stoned, so if this doesn't make any sense, just ignore me. :tongue:

It makes great sense, the problem is that images aren't stored in the database but as regular files on the server. So while that technique unfortunately wouldn't work, I was discussing this with Anno and he had a suggestion for a way that probably would. So stay tuned, and thanks for the suggestion!
