Search does not include the keywords?
« on: October 22, 2009, 11:22:39 AM »
Hi,

I have some searches that I use to stumble upon stuff I might be interested in recording. However, it seems the searches to not include matching the keywords associated with a program. E.g. if I have a search for "nature" and nature is in the programs keywords (keywords = the bit that has 60 mins, PG, WS, CC, Nature, Documentary etc...), but not in the title or description, then I get no match. This seems a major omission (has this changed recently?). It make the search function next to useless for me.

Am I missing something here? Otherwise, this seems like an easy and obvious thing to fix (the "Everything" selection in search should include the keywords).

cheers

Hi Kevin,

Currently the searching does not include the genres, which is what you're trying to match on ("Nature" and "Documentary").  Only the series and episode titles, actors, directors, and description.  We may add the ability to search by genre in the future though -- thanks for letting us know you'd be interested in using it.

Actually, what I really want is the RSS feed of "my upcoming shows" to include stuff of particular genres. The existing search infrastructure is a nice way to achieve it except genres can't be searched for.
