I just pushed a little update to the site search.

It's not the full-blown autocomplete with images and all, that I'm envisioning, but while working on these controls, I got to a conveniently working state. So I figured, I'd just push it and get some feedback.

The site search box will now autocomplete band, album, and user names as well as genres, and lead directly to the respective result if autocompletion is used. You will only be sent to the usual old search pages when you search for something that doesn't autocomplete or something that autocompletion won't find (like words not at the beginning of album or band names).

It will also remember your last used search selection for a while, before returning to "band".

Matching is done via proper collation, so you should find bands like Mgła or Sólstafir with whatever you have available on your keyboard. For bands with more esoteric names like ██████, it will also match the also known as field.

And since that was by far the most frequent thing I was asked since taking over: yes, it will match Be'lakor as well.

Please play around with it at your own convenience and post your feedback here, if you have any

For my very first search with the new feature, I just put "ge" without having any band in mind whatsoever, and look at what came up first:



Great work, corrupt, I love this.
