dev_note_search by Dediggefedde dev_note_search by Dediggefedde

About:

This script is obsolete! please install the next version: Dev_Note_Search2!

dediggefedde.deviantart.com/ar…


Installable userscript: Search within your Notes!

This is a working script! Install it if you want this!



This userscript adds a search-form in your note-section so you can search for usersnames, subjects, messages and dates.

This is an entry for deviantart-Related's collaboration-contest: namenotrequired.deviantart.com…
=sugarpoultry has made a similar visual suggestion some time ago: sugarpoultry.deviantart.com/ar…

You can search via Regex:
Normal words should be contained.
2 different words will pe separated with |: interview|promote will search for notes containing interview or Note.
To search for 2 words within one note use .*: interview.*promote
Search for patterns: "myd+. entry" will match "my 1. entry" "my 2. entry" "my 123. entry"
Not sure about nicknames? make wildcarts: "de.*fedde" will match my name, too!

Site-effect: Browsing pages and filtering will become much faster!


How to use


The first time you open the Note-search, it will have to index your notes.
For 300 notes this may take 10s.
Every time you reopen the note-search it will look for new notes and index them automatically.
However, when deleting a note, you have to reindex (with the button) it yourself.

To search simply insert search-words.

Preferences:


works well with...
firefox + Greasmonkey-addon,
chrome + tampermonkey,

Information for installing can be seen here: fav.me/d4akman

Install: userscripts.org/scripts/show/1…



Updates


Version 1.2:
Bug removed regarding read/unread icon
Performance enhanced, scanning and using should be a few times faster now.
Version 1.4:
Adjustedto new Tampermonkey. It don't like optional function parameters

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-07-05
For years, deviants have wanted the ability to search notes. Prayers were answered when =Dediggefedde uploaded his script dev_note_search (based on =sugarpoultry's suggestion)!

Heheeh, okay then. I noticed it was a little buggy just now

Thank you so much for making this! One issue for me that no one else seems to have encountered: absolutely nothing happens when I click the search button. I'm using Firefox + Greasemonkey, things show up fine, doesn't crash, indexing is done, but clicking Search does nothing. I've tried restarting the browser and reinstalling the script. Any idea what could be up?

I still can't get it to work, my notes page looks like yours but I just cant get notes to show up  that I want. Do we have to fill in certain info and all the boxes?

So the script is running and installed correctly? e.g. using tampermonkey for chrome?
I'm sorry that I don't remember if you commented that before, but I couldn't find a previous commet.
When you click on the Notes-Tab at the top, is the search-form showing?

well, surprisingly it also stopped working for me without doing anything...
I will redo the script the following days.
