I get asked for such features every now and then, and my answer is always the same: the risk that a bug in my code will damage someone's library is too great for my liking. MuWire accesses shared files in read-only manner and only writes inside its settings directory and in the download & incomplete folders.

Hi,
I am still uncertain how to use the discription. I would like to use it to let my search be more specific and give the downloader more structured information.
Lets say i want to search not for a filename, instead i would like search for and inside information about the movie.
Like the actor, date etc. I know i can use imdb, but what about using the 32kb. It seems to me like an empty paper to fill in the right way. So i thought about a specifc opcode/tag for organizing the information, present it better for the user and get some additional features. To organize in tabs i can write:
«NameTAB«:
Textfield
End ...
Or i could add tabs, name and fill them in the create decription process.

For example when i then open the description of the file i see the information in TABs and i can click thru the named tabs to find the information i would like. Even a preview could be possible, not in MuWire itself, instead in the preview tab field is the hash of files, i can click to download. Like preview jpg, Screenshot..

Or a tag/tab for source like origin: archive.org link

Some name of tabs could be standardized and choose as default like preview, source, additionalTags while creating desriptions.

One other usecase would the use of the description to group files. Let's say people of a thread want to group their files to a specific thread on a forum. They could use a hash in the discription to search only for files of this thread. When you find a file you can easyily can find other files. Like a tagHash. Thinkable as a real hash, a string of threadlink or even unspecific with a tag #coldweatherbyFlying as one string. Thats all possible if a search can be restricted to descrption and more specific to tabs/fields in the description, i think.

Search only for/inside descriptions or more specific inside its specific tabs seems necessary for me to archieve that and to avoid that long natural texts inside the description will trigger to many unrelated search results.

Thanks

The developer is currently on well-deserved vacation, or so. The answers take accordingly, a little patience is required. If you have no direct "feature requests", but are looking for information or want to exchange information with other participants, you can and will open a separate topic.

I've been reluctant to specialize MuWire for one or another type of content. I like to keep it a generic tool that is agnostic of the file type.

It might be possible to add content-specific search functionality as a plugin, assuming I ever get around to building plugin support. Other than that your idea is technically possible.
