More site changes

After realizing that I was guilty of one of my own pet peeves—not having a search feature to find web content—I decided it was time to incorporate one. At first I started using the one that came with my blogging application, but realized that it would only search through my blogs (not all of my other articles and such that are scattered throughout my website), and it was adware. So, I dumped it. The next thing I checked was to see if one came as a standard script with my web host. Nadda. Bummer. So, started searching. I didn’t want to spend any cashola (because I got none), but I wanted something that was highly customizable. Well, Baruch Hashem! I found exactly what I needed. If you notice, there is a search field at the top of every page of the site. This service is courtesy of Fluid Dynamics Search Engine, and I must say, I’m impressed. If you use it often, and would like to make a suggestion how it would work better, let me know and I’ll see if I can tweak it. I’ve already customized it quite a bit for better results and reporting for my site, but I’m sure it we always have room for improvement.
