Movie Connect

Improved search results, plus Search-As-You-Type suggestions

September 7th, 2017

A nice upgrade for the search feature today, in both Movie Connect and the free CLZ Cloud viewer for movie collections!

We have completely replaced the search engine, making the searches much faster and giving you better, more focussed, less “fuzzy” search results.

On top of that, we have now added our popular “Search-As-You-Type” mechanism to the search box for quick finding and selecting a particular movie in your database:

  • In the Quick Search box, just start typing the first few letters of the title you are looking for.
  • While typing, a drop-down list will appear, showing the first five matching movies, with small cover images.
    (for most movies, it only takes 2 or 3 letters before it shows up.)
  • Once you see the one you were looking for, use the up/down keys to select it, then hit Enter.
  • This will instantly take you the movie details page for that movie.
