Separate search histories, please

Postby RayMark » Thu Aug 31, 2017 8:44 pm

It would be great to have separate search histories for subject field and for poster field. They clearly have no business being together. It is difficult to find posters among subject searches, and worse - they get pushed out because the drop box with the search history has a limited number of entries. With a separate search history for posters, I would likely have all the posters I need right here in the dropbox at all times.
And it is more difficult to remember and to enter posters again each time they are pushed out by completely unrelated subject searches.

It's not a bad idea. Let me think about it.

Just don't put them into the registry.
Currently each instance (= each data path) has its own separate search history which is exactly as it should be.

It might even reduce the load on your search server. Because probably others do as I do: I periodically run unnecessary poster searches just to move them to the top so they do not disappear from the list

I have to check but I'm pretty sure they go into "GuiItems.db3" and are common to all instances.

but GuiItems.db3 is in NBData. I only run separate instances on separate NBData folders. Otherwise there might be all sorts of problems and conflicts.
So the histories for instances are separate, at least for me.

Yeah, they're all in GUIItems like I said.
