Searches are performed against Collections, which are linked to MySource Matrix Site assets, and Meta-Collections which comprise multiple Collections (ie; for searching more than one site at a time). Configuration of Collections, Metadata mappings and indexing are performed under the Funnelback Manager asset.
The Funnelback Search Page asset has been expanded to include bodycopies for Contextual Navigation, Type Formats (HTML, PDF etc.), Featured Pages and spelling suggestions.
Funnelback search integration is performed through interaction with external binaries. These are included within MySource Matrix SSV for configuration during installation or upgrade.
Search indexing functions differently to MySource Matrix Search, in that content is not immediately indexed when updated. Scripts are available within the Funnelback package which can be added to the cron to update the index periodically. The frequency at which the indexer should be run is dependent on the amount of content being indexed and the dynamic requirements of this content. Collections can be reindexed independently of each other.
