SimpleSearch wobject

This wobject isn't as fancy and complex as Len's Advanced (indexed) Search, thus the name SimpleSearch. Basicly this wobject replaces the standard WebGUI search facility, extended with templating functionallity. One extra feature is that you can choose wether to search through all, or only selected namespaces.
The templating variables also contain some more info on the wobjects, such as title, description (with firstwords and firstsentences), lastEdited, etc.
The template variables are listed in the INSTALL text document, I didn't have time yet to put it in the WebGUI help system. The install comes with a default template that is quite similar to the current search layout, to facilitate smooth changes for those who implement it ;)

Please post your comment on this wobject here, and let me know what you think about it when you use it.

I placed a new version of the wobject in this post. I fixed a small security bug that showed pages in the results that users weren't supposed to see. Just overwrite the SimpleSearch.pm file with the one that is in the v2.03.tar

System RequirementsPlease be advised: this contribution was tested with something older than WebGUI 7.5. When this contribution was uploaded there was no field for the author to fill out regarding it's requirements.

Hi

Nice idea.  What do you need to do to add (custom) wobjects to the search facility ?

I'm afraid you'll have use the fancy Search to make your custom wobjects fully searchable. You'll be able to add your custom wobjects to the index configuration, and search in all available wobject data.

To prevent any confusion between the available search wobjects, I'll pre-release my version next week.
