My first thought is that this is not ready for general KDE Q&A. The plan 
was to get the wrinkles out with Krita, using this as a pilot (and dev 
site). People need to know that it is likely that there will be major 
tweaks, as well as the possibility that all the data may disappear.

I agree with you Scott. I would expect to be able to look for questions 
dealing with Krita and not get other products. It doesn't work like I 
thought it would.



I think the Ajax type ahead search might be the cause of the problem. I don't think it will work well with lots of data and results. Also it is most likely not honouring the category selected. Can it be turned off ? 

I really like this as a starting point, clean, simple and the categories are perfect for KDE Applications.

Support for wildcard entries would be good too.

So far I like it
