A search function would be a lovely addition to halfbakery
because it would make finding ideas of interest a quicker
process and, I wager, reduce near-duplicate postings as a
True, near-duplication doesn't seem to be a grave problem
the moment, but the new, more distinctly categorized
interface "hides" an idea based on someone else's idea of its
proper category, making it much more likely that a user will
fail to notice a parallel entry before posting.

||I would say let a search engine (Altavista, Infoseek) crawl the whole site, then place their search form and button on a page somewhere. It looks like this site is comprised of real, tangible webpages, not manufactured on the fly with PHP or something. I know that Infoseek and others lets you constrain your search to one domain only, so one can set that as a flag in the FORM code of your search form.
||It's quick and dirty, but might suit your needs until you find time to write one!
||Here's an example code (edited and pulled from my site). It will search spidered Halfbakery pages only, and display the results at the Infoseek/GO Network site:
||<FORM method="get" action="http://www.infoseek.com/Titles">
<INPUT type=text NAME="qt" SIZE=40 MAXLENGTH=80>
Powered by <a href="http://guide.infoseek.com/">
Infoseek</a> <INPUT TYPE=submit VALUE="seek"> <INPUT TYPE=reset VALUE="clear">
<a href = "http://www.infoseek.com/
<input type=hidden name="col" value="WW,cat_RES">
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME="oq" VALUE="url:www.halfbakery.com/">
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME="sv" VALUE="IS">
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME="lk" VALUE="noframes">
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME="nh" VALUE="10">
||PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give us a search!
I posted an annotation to an idea a few weeks ago and I can't find it anywhere!!
||Hey, it works... what fun! I hadn't realized I'd annotated
that many things.
||Out of curiosity, how'd you
||Hashtables mapping the words from your querying
To hashed names of objects the words might appear in
Then grepping those objects (as lower case strings)
These are a few of my favorite things.
||I've subjected the new search to rigorous vanity-search testing, and have concluded that it is a beaut. Half the suggestions in this category made obsolete at a blow.
