EasySearch Released with CMS 6 Support

EasySearch is now available featuring support for EPiServer CMS 6. Get the latest release from the EasySearch Download page. There are separate versions for EPiServer CMS 5 R2 or later and CMS 6 so be sure to download the correct version. The module can be installed using the EPiServer Deployment Center. Installation instructions and the Developer Guide are included in the download for reference.

New in this release;

  • CMS 6 Support as well as existing support for CMS 5 R2 or later
  • Stripping of markup has been improved to prevent run-in of text when HTML doesn't include any line breaks.
  • The index is now optimised. Optimisation of the index is performed automatically and can also be manually invoked from the admin page. The frequency of index optimisation isn't currently configurable but will be in future.

EasySearch v2.0.0.0 Released

We are pleased to announce that EasySearch v2.0.0.0 has now been released.

A major new enhancement to EasySearch is the implementation of a FindPagesWithCriteriaMethod that matches the signature for the method in EPiServer. A similiar method that can return Lucene Document objects instead of a PageDataCollection is also implemented named FindLuceneDocumentsWithCriteria which also has the same signature. A more detailed example for using these can be found in the EasySearch Developer Guide.doc included in the release documentation.

Support for synonyms has been added by providing an ISynonymProvider interface that allows a developer to implement their own custom provider. An example of creating a custom ISynonymProvider and how to use it when performing a search is also provided in the documentation.

Faceted search is now fully supported and documentation for creating a fully featured faceted search page is also provided. Faceted search enables users to filter away unwanted hits based on categories or topics. This allows them to find more relevant results more quickly. An excellent demo package provided by Mari Jørgensen using the previous EasySearch v1.x release is available to try.

More information and a list of bug fixes can be found on the EasySearch Module Page.
