I've been working on updating the form that appears after the search results. I have used flexboxes to organize the form elements, and I have added some JavaScript. When the form is submitted, it will disable any fields with empty or zero values, because this keeps the query string cleaner, and these will be provided with appropriate defaults if left unassigned. Also, when you check a checkbox that is mutually exclusive with another one, it will uncheck the other one. Checkboxes are mutually exclusive if checking both would leave you with zero search results. Mutually exclusive checkboxes include the ones for only external links and only internal links and the newly added ones for only member submitted pages and only HTML pages. I have also added some tooltips to explain what these and some other options mean.

I have added some new search options for choosing between =, LIKE, and REGEXP, and I will deprecate the options specifically for REGEXP searching.

While there is still more to work on, it is stable for now. So, I have copied what I've done to the official queryinc.php script.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
Here is some preformatted text.
  This line begins with some indentation.
    This begins with even more indentation.
And this line has no indentation.
