So, I got my site search up and running. Not too much to search yet, nor does it search all sections, but I think this is the best search that I have coded yet. It provides the title, search preview, date of the item (different for different items), and the link to the item of course. It gives the search results a score. The scoring is a bit odd, and I have never had a great scoring methodology.
Anyway, as more areas get developed on the site, I will provide more search options.
