Thank you! Have you tried it? Is my explanation missing something?
You should try with making a copy of the original files and modify the renamed copy, so the useres can use the search during integration.

I'm not familiar enough with CVS to do this myself.

We would have to intorduce a new Tiki wide, or user properties variable. I think no ordinary user is interested in viewing search results in tiki-syntax code. Please correct me should i see this wrong lol

> Moreover, did you manage to make that 2-word searches which result in the 2 words found become higher in the results list than pages with the single word found? (boolean search) I mean, in your screenshot, you found "unix_vi" page first, when searching the 2 words "unix vi". Did you have any other pages with the word unix or vi alone?

I only modified the output so far.
