Hi
Searching contents is a vital part of any website since it saves a lot of time for the visitor and for the owner of the website. I think one of the most important things that the DiY-CMS was lacking since its launch was the search part. Therefore, I programmed this search module with many options in order to make the search process very effective through any website that is using DiY-CMS.

Visitor can type any number of keywords and select whether he wants to find them all in one post or anyone of the keywords in a post. Visitor can also select where to search, in News, Forums, Downloads sections or in all of them together with the option of searching in the title or the post.

The visitor can also order the search results in Descending or Ascending order. He can also sort the results by date, number of comments, number of readers or the author of the post.

The visitor can also refine the search by choosing the time scope of the search and how many rows to display in each search results page.

Here is a screen shot for the search module index page:


And you can download it through the download area in this website.

Additionally, most of the themes that I will convert in the future will contain a search box that will not function correctly unless this module is installed in your website. (You still can remove the search box from the theme if you do not want to provide search functionality in your website).
