Here's a quick update of Moodle's Global Search feature. Currently, many of the things have been implemented and I would like to ask developers to try it and test it for any security leaks.
All the information on is given in the Global Search wiki:
- Steps on how to install and set-up Global Search prototype is given here: http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Global_search#Prototype:_version_1.0
- List of search features currently implemented: http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Global_search#Introduction
- Searchable content through Global Search: http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Global_search#Searchable_content_in_Global_Search
I've also included a section Tests where I've listed down a comprehensive list of cases to test. Developers may use these cases or add their own. You may update the wiki with your own test cases and results of the test, which would help me in making Global Search better and prone to more security leaks.
If you have any problem running the prototype, feel free to post here or you may directly message me.
