New Public Search Module

Public users searching for resources, services and other community assets are about to enjoy a powerfully effective search algorithm, and a new interface as well.

Released to our customers for review, each of our customers can now review their own online resource directory with these new tools and provide feedback before we release this into production.

The search algorithm uses a linguistically aware solution, reducing words to their core roots.  This eliminates issues with plurals and other word forms and many types of spelling issues.  Behind the scenes each customer's resource directory is regularly indexed for responsive searches.

The new search results interface is easier to use, more friendly, and for authorized users, provides built in editing and other tools which automatically appear for those with appropriate access rights.

Thank You! To the many customers, particularly those in New York, California, and Texas for their suggestions and refinements to this new design.
