Advanced Searching

Over time many users asked to be able to make more complex searches using the search box (e.g. matching multiple terms or doing exclusive matches...). The new unstable release 1.5.1 introduces an "Advanced..." button in the standard search dialog. When you click this button the dialog will change and a dialog very similar to the search folder properties dialog will appear. Here you can define one or matching search rules to realize much more complex queries. This advanced search functionality thereby should now cover a lot more use cases.

Note: Liferea still does not allow you to search only the current feed or all feeds of a given folder. The current DB schema doesn't allow building views with such filters. But given time this might be improved...
