Webglimpse 2.18.8

Webglimpse is a feature-rich search engine.
Webglimpse is a feature-rich search engine that has been used on thousands of sites, all different flavors of Unix, and in countries from Nigeria to Norway, Chile to Canada.

Nearly everything about Webglimpse is configurable: how to select the files to index, how to search them, and how to present the results to the user. Yet, we have tried to keep the install simple and quick so that you can get your search up and running today.

Main features:

  • Guaranteed install: if you purchase a license, we guarantee a successful install on your site. We will walk you through configuration on your server, and if desired will perform a remote install for you.
  • Web-ministration Interface: Manage all your archives (searchable sites) through a single web interface. Context-sensitive help tells you exact directory paths on your system where all configuration files are located.
  • Automated Search Form: simple form allows users to search for ANY KEYWORDS, ALL KEYWORDS or EXACT PHRASE, and to find only matches WITHOUT certain words. Automatically generates correct boolean expression and sends to glimpse.
  • Search From Any Page of your Site: optional search box can be added to all pages of your site, so that users can search from anywhere. They can also search just the links on the page they are looking at, so that the hits are more likely to be relevent.
