"-keyword" filters for removing results.

You mentioned that you put support for "-keyword" filters for removing results in build 42. How do we use that? Do we add something to settings.ini?

In the search box type "what you want" -"what you don't want", eg. linux -fedora

It will give you all the linux results after removing all results with fedora in.

Feature request: static filter list

Thanks magpac62. That brings up a good idea for a feature.

What I think would be very helpful then, is a filer list. Bit Che could remove results which match words in a file (ie. filter.txt). That would be great for avoiding results you may never want to receive, such as adult results or non-english audiobooks (ie. "-SE-"), etc. It shouldn't be too hard to implement since Bit Che already removes duplicate results.

nah.. this is very simple.. i was already going to do this but then stopped... but I will implement a basic  "filter.txt" that will remove any matches to the strings in the file...
