New feature: Showing similar topics

Postby Stefan Kottwitz » Sat Feb 11, 2012 12:41 am

Hi all,

now the forum contains about 15.000 topics. That's a huge amount of information. For supporting browsing and exploring the content, I installed an addition, which shows a list of possibly related topics at the bottom of a topic page.

The program
  • searches our database for similar topic titles
  • looks for similar topics in the same subforum or a related subforums
  • prints the 10 best matches below a topic

That's one more reason for choosing the right subforum a good topic title:
  • Bad example: "Urgent help needed"
  • Good example: "Connecting nodes by edges with TikZ"

So, for example, when I click on the topic beamer | tikZ Arrows and scroll down to the bottom, I see similar and possibly related topics which might be also helpful:

beamer-tikz-arrows.png (39.87 KiB) Viewed 7805 times

More specific keywords in topic titles give better results.

Happy browsing!
