New search engine installed 

In a previous entry in this blog, I requested anyone who knew of a good search script for websites to step forward.

Once again, our good friend Bryan comes to the rescue.

My first impression of the program he recommended is that it is a wonderful search script. There are many customizable features. Additionally, unlike previous data base-driven search programs that I've tried on this site, this one searches by relevance. In other words, it isn't supposed to just spit out results in any random manner. It should put the most relevant data at the top of the list of results. Which, hopefully, will mean that it will take less time for you to find that which you are seeking.

Best of all, we now have the capability of "spidering" other sites and including them in our search results. So anyone visiting Sweet Liberty can search this site, or the others, or all of them at once. At this time, I have only included Sweet Liberty and Amerikan Expose in our data base.

I'm still working on customizing this thing, so if I have anything else to add, I'll post it here.

You can access the search script by using the old form on the left-hand side of the main page, or by going here.

Again, thanks Bryan for the tip!
