dtSearch Web

The dtSearch Web license adds a dtSearch Web Setup… item to the dtSearch Desktop File menu. This lets you choose where to install or upgrade a website before you add a search form.

dtSearch Web Form Builder lets you generates a search form (also known as a search engine results page (SERP) to search multiple document collections on your internet or intranet site.

You can also customise the contents of search results, the document display, and the search form itself, or use an editor such as Adobe Dreamweaver to obtain more professional results.

The form builder will automatically install the search form on your Internet or Intranet Web site, so visitors can instantly carry out a search.

After a search, dtSearch Web will display retrieved files with hit highlighting, and all links and images intact. The result looks just like the original HTML or PDF page, but with highlighted hits. HTML links remain fully functional in the document. “next hit”, “previous document”, “next document” buttons let you quickly navigate through your hits and documents.

For XML, you can perform indexed searches using the full range of dtSearch features across an entire XML database, or limited to a highly specific combination of fields or sub-fields.

For other file types, dtSearch uses built-in file converters to convert non-Web-ready formats such as word processor, database, spreadsheet, ZIP, etc., to HTML for display with highlighted hits.
