Right now the search function in GL 1.3 only looks for words used in stories, static pages or events. It would be nice to be able to add search keywords that don't necessarily show up in the actual text.

Along the same vein, how about being able to list stories in multiple topics, or a main topic and then sub-topics? For instance, let's say I've got a story about a 60 Minutes report on cloning. I could list it under my Television topic, but it's also relevant to Science, and maybe politics or religion.
Say maybe there's a drop down menu or radio buttons for Main Topic, then two or three sub-topics.

Thanks

not sure what you mean there... what would the function be searching in if not the text? If you mean other fields than the main text, then that is simply a function of the plugin and how it makes use of the api.

I think he means a keywords field for every story. So even if the story does not have the word it will still come up.

Thanks, Scurvy!

That's exactly what I meant - me no good so sometimes sentences form.
