Good news for anyone who's had to sift through a pile of vaguely-related search results to find the thing they were looking for! Demozoo's search feature has had a major revamp - we've switched away from Djapian as the backend in favour of PostgreSQL's full text search, which gives us vastly improved control over search result rankings and filtering options.
You'll now see more relevant results in your searches - with exact title matches taking priority over items that match a word mid-title, for example. For extra control you can restrict your search to a particular category: just sceners, or music, or parties. The new search is equipped with powerful filtering capabilities that go way beyond that, though - open up the "Advanced search help" panel on the search results page and you'll find options for filtering on platform, production type, tags, groups and more.
