Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Share same module between different plugins

I would like to know how to deal with this problem (what is better practice):

I have a module that have almost only base classes. I want to use this module in some plugins I want to create I can't put this as module to different plugins, since I cant compile project because of

 The namespace '<global namespace>' already contains a definition for 'SomeModule'

Should I make sort of "Core" plugin or there is a better way?

Hi Testerro,

Yes, the common practice would be to put the base implementations inside of a separate module and specialize the implementations in other modules. (See, for example, OnlineSubsystem being implemented in OnlineSubsystemSteam, OnlineSubsystemGoogle, etc.)
