All of today and some of last night was spent installing and configuring a static search engine. I was lucky enough to find a user’s web site that had clear installation and configuration instructions, becaue the package author’s wasn’t very good.
Currently there is only an Advanced Search page. I’d like to have a quick search bar on every page, but that will take time for me to figure out how to put the results into a modal window so you don’t automatically leave the page you are on.
For future enhancement, I’d like to have a snippet of text near the matching words, and maybe an match score. I know the search engine calculates a match score. I just need to figure out how to make it visible.
Also, I don’t know if this handles literal strings in quotes. If not, that will be another enhancement.
Finally, the search logic seems to use AND logic for a series of words. Would be nice to have an option for OR logic, too.
