EE Podcast

A new episode of the EE Podcast is available for your listening pleasure!

For episode 77, we discuss EE search options from basic core functionality to more complex requirements that need add-ons.

Episode #77

I was quite excited for EE Search, since I've only used the native EE search for my projects. As we discussed during the podcast, core provides just the right amount of functionality to take care of most basic search needs. Like I said, I've never had to use anything else.

Lea, on the other hand, has worked with clients who needed much more extensive search capabilities. She talked about some of the most popular (and currently active) add-ons available for search, including how she used Solspace's Super Search for an incredibly complex site search. We also discuss options for addressing performance, unique queries and special characters.

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
