The grouping of the problems is quite nice. I like the hierarchy and the fact that problems can belong to multiple groups. However, it would be nice if this metadata were more useful for searching.

It seems like the current search interface could be extended to include the groupings in the form of a checked tree view. It would simply act as a filter, only including problems in the search which the selected criteria. Optionally, the same tree could be added to the user's profile to determine the default selection values when beginning a new search.

Thoughts? Alternatives?

Hello dho,
Your suggestions are very interesting, but no changes can be done without webmaster adum who has been absent from the forum for a year or so now...
Meanwhile, if you are interested in "real chess" you can always search one of the seardh criteria
Source -> Real game
Style -> combination
Style -> endgame
Style -> Opening
