Website Update

A "I'm feeling lucky" button was requested by rubenwardy about 21 hours ago - well, now it's here. And with this features I rewrote about 400 lines of code, which means there can be fresh bugs around. So please report them instead of roasting and eating ;)

Not shure if this bug was introduced lately or if this exists for a longer time:
if you search for "locks" all mods are from "Calinou" but they are from different authors .

I realy like the opensearch function, but could you please replace the favicon to something more minetest like? I always need 2 seconds of thinking what that search engine the Image icon represents.

Seems like it does it with any search term...the first mod that pops up gets credit for all of them :)

No, this is a new one. Thanks for reporting, I fixed it.

That favicon was generated by perlin noise, then modified with the sepia filter. I would really appreciate suggestions for a new icon because I honestly can't draw anything that would look nice as an icon.

Github has now topics, right? So could you make the mod searcher search for mods with a specific topic, like "minetest-mod"? Some mods aren't on forum.
Should I better post this in a new issue?
Note that I've recently renamed myself on github and co. to "Desour". (I'm bad at naming things.)
Feel free to call me DS.

Yes, I also noticed this new feature. Sadly, this won't list mods that already are on GitHub, but with an inactive owner. Currently it's common to upload the mod and post it on the forums. Additionally there are not enough new mods in that list yet. So it may take a while until the parser will go through the GitHub pages aswell.
Opened an issue for it: Support GitHub tags (#2)

Now it does.
Client side mods are now listed too

As an addition to this, there is also a change in the random function. The results are now filtered, depending on the type of mod that is selected. Previously you had everything but old mods in the search results.

And as always, there are certainly some new bugs! Please find them quickly ;)

Search is down, due to something to do with too mch CPU usage, though I'm just trying to figure out whatever the message means (it isn't in English).
If you say that

Code: Select all

function.name_of_thing_to_do
is impossible, then you didn't try hard enough. :P

Thank you very much!
This mod search is a real life saver. I routinely use this search engine and it works like a charm!

Someone please make this thread sticky. The mod search is extremely important, it is often the only way to find a mod.

Oh yes! I'm using it often as well. The link ought to be placed in the forum's header for quick access. In MT, you have to search for the search function...
A list of my mods can be found here.

the "random" function seems to have taken a dive

Code: Select all

Fatal error: Call to undefined function connect() in /home/u972658556/public_html/MTstuff/modSearch.php on line 102

Not sure if this is a bug, or just missing data:
Searching for "balloon", I only get hotairballoon.

But there must be another balloon-mod that looks very different from that,
see my latest nyancat-screenshots.

I think the link to the Mod Search Engine should be in the Mods section, because after a few years I accidentally found this great search for mods.

Re: Search Minetest mods!

Hello everyone, it's time for a quick update.

After four successful years of searching mods, Hostinger decided to shut down the free hosting offer in the next 1.5 months. Too bad, but that's finally something that lets me make a move.
As some of you might already have noticed: the hoster and the domain has changed. Until the old website is shut down, you will be redirected to the new address, including a little URL change from "MTstuff" to "minetest".

New address: https://krock-works.uk.to/minetest/modSearch.php

More details:
SSL: The website is now encrypted, thanks to Let's Encrypt and root access to the configuration files.
SQLite3: Just a minor detail for end-users but I'm testing whether SQLite3 is suitable for this job - and it performs very well so far. If you get some warnings, please report them ;)
Exploits: I've already tried some well known SQL queries, but you might get some information out of the database (please report if you did so). Hint: The database is opened as "read-only".
ToS & PP: I'm not a lawyer but the basic information about your data and how to use the service is now available.

EDIT: 4100th post. *party*

@Wuzzy: It's not my problem (™) when this single JavaScript line is restricted by an addon in your browser.
Please let me know whether the dropdown box also redirects you to the new page (on click) with JavaScript disabled. I don't think so but I would remove the message in that case.

I think I found a bug...

Consider the following screenshot:

Notice how it says the author is StarNinjas.

Now look at the forum topic:

Notice how it says the author is sorcerykid.

Hmmm...

Somehow the "scarlet" mod imported data from "xocean". All fields except the title were copied over. Thanks for reporting. Please notify me when you find another mod with this issue.
EDIT: Apparently the link verification does not work correctly for this particular bitbucket repository. It redirects to the login page; the repository seems to be semi-private.
