Apple Updates Developer Forums With Enhanced Search, Thread Monitoring

Posted by · 4204 views · Translate

Apple has announced an update to its Developer Forums that brings enhanced search and thread monitoring.

The Apple Developer Forums are a great place to connect with fellow developers and Apple engineers as you give and receive help on development topics. And now, it’s easier to find and keep track of content you’re interested in. Take advantage of enhanced search and a new feature that monitors threads for you and sends you an email each time there’s a reply.

Search
The following search queries are supported on Apple Developer Forums. When searching for a tag, include brackets.

● Keywords. This returns questions matching the keywords you entered.
● Tag keyword. Use the format [keyword]. This returns tags that contain the keyword. For example, if you search [watch], you will see all tags that include the word "watch."
● One tag. Use the format [tag]. This returns the tag’s landing page (if available), which contains a brief description of the tag and the list of questions tagged. If the tag doesn’t have a landing page, you’ll just see the list of questions tagged.
● Two or more tags. Use the format [tag][tag]. This returns questions that match all of the tags.
● Keyword and tag. Use the format keyword [tag]. This returns questions that match both the keyword and tag.
● Keyword and two or more tags. Use the format keyword [tag][tag] to return questions that match the keyword and all of the tags.
● Tags. Use the format [all] to return all tags available on the Apple Developer Forums.
● User. Use the format user:username. This returns the profile page if there’s an exact match. Otherwise, it returns a list of users whose names match the search.

Watching Threads
To follow threads that interest you without having to check for new activity, click the black bell icon in the upper-left corner of the thread. The icon turns blue and you’ll receive an email each time the thread is updated. All threads that you actively watch are listed on your forums profile page under the Watching tab for easy reference. Watching is anonymous and only you can see the Watching tab on your profile. To stop watching a thread, delete it from the Watching tab or click the bell again at the top of the thread.
