TNS Search Engine Now Online!

At long last, the TNS site-wide full-text search engine is operative and open for public use. It is in its final beta stage, meaning there may be some bugs left, so using it is also testing it, and any feedback about ease of use or problems encountered would be very much appreciated.

The facility took a while to develop because the search-engine platform I based it on employs a different search syntax than most web users have become accustomed to in this age of Google. So I had to write a "script" that translates the type of search terms you would use in Google into the format required by our system. I also integrated the text-search engine with our content-management system so results could be displayed more logically and conveniently.

Please feel free to give it a whirl. There's a search form on the front page now, or you can go straight to the search facility itself
