The lovely Dreamwidth developers added a new feature in their latest code push — search boxes for journal sidebars — so there's now a convenient way to search through all my posts.
- The search doesn't work properly for Chinese characters. Dreamwidth are aware of this but I don't know when it will be resolved. In the meantime, it's best to search in English or pinyin (you don't need to include the accents for the pinyin).
- It searches all my posts, not just the ones about Chinese menus. You can get around this to some extent by adding "chinese menu" to your search term.
- Because resources to run the search are currently a bit limited, the search is only available to logged-in users (and hence the search box will only appear for logged-in users). However, you don't need a Dreamwidth account to log in to the site — you can do it via OpenID, and I've confirmed that the search works fine for OpenID users.
While I'm posting, I thought I should mention that although all my recent posts have been about Chinese menus, I may from time to time use this journal for other kinds of posts. If you're only interested in the Chinese menu stuff, just follow my "chinese menu" tag and the other stuff will be filtered out: web, RSS, Atom.
