Testing new Search engine

Posted by TenantNet on May 22, 1999 at 16:34:48:

We're testing a new search engine for the Message Board. It should search the current forum and all archives. It's a lot faster than the old search function. But it may be a bit confusing in operation (feedback welcome).

From the current message board page, you can search by KEYWORD meaning if you type in "Vallone" or "pets" it will return messages containing those words.

If you go to the Advanced Search page, you then have an option to search by KEYWORD or by CONCEPT. Help is available from that page. Some articles returned by a CONCEPT search might not contain the words you specify. For example, if you specify "dog" some returned articles might contain "pet" or "cat" but not "dog."

Also, when results are returned, you can then display the results by "confidence" or by "group".

At present, the results only return about 20 articles; we're working on that.
