Searching for texts on this platform, with the help of filters, can be done by keywords and logical search by selecting the tags that the text author selected when entering text.
Searching by keyword searches for one word that is in the name of the texts.
Logical search is performed by selecting tags that are divided into 6 groups; target group, profession, theme, style, emotions and senses.
Filter search results are a combination of selected tags from 6 different groups.
If a user selects one tag in only one group, they will receive a certain number of filtered texts. If it ticks another tag in the same group, the number of filtered texts will increase. If he chooses the third mark, the result will increase even more.
This is because the selection of tags within a group is driven by the OR operator , so with more tags entered, the result increases.
If a user tags one bookmark in one group, it will get a certain number of texts, and after that it adds another bookmark in another group, the result will be reduced. These are texts that are marked with both selected tags. If it selects a label and from the third group of filters it will receive an even smaller list of texts labeled with all three tags. As the number of selected criteria from different groups in the filter increases, the search precision increases. This is because tags between different groups are selected by the AND operator.
The more tags from different groups are entered into the filter, the fewer texts found.
If the keyword is entered in the filter with the keyword, the result is further reduced because this criterion is also selected by the operator AND with other groups.
In this way, using a filter, the user can pinpoint what topic he is interested in, what type of reader the text is intended for, what style the text is written for, what level of reader’s expertise the text is written, what emotions the text describes, mentions or evokes, and which senses the text mentions, describes, or stimulates.
