Fix for Searching for Ys series of Games
« on: February 12, 2023, 08:16:20 pm »
Hi all,

You should now be able to search for "Ys" in the main search as well as the advanced search. I know this is a small fix, but can be bothersome if you're a fan of the series. Our search had limitations based on the length of the search term.

Do we have any other 2 characters series / games that pose a similar issue?

There are also single character games that can't easily be found, but are not so impossible to find that people create dupes of them.

D

Z

Recommend remove the character search limitation, but do the following
- change to "AND" search method for multiple terms
- do not search within terms for short searches. It doesn't do this anyways, so searching for D or Z will only return results where those letters are standalone and does not return all results where a D or Z is used in a title.

Example, a search for D no
https://vgcollect.com/search/D%20no
Does return results of all titles with D (alone) and no (alone) but not all titles that contain D or no within words.

Changing the search method and retaining the regular search behaviour should eliminate the problem where a search would tax the server.
