There are two interfaces for the search engine -- the public search interface, which your visitors see, and the private admin area, which only you will see.

Public Search Interface

Try out a simple search of the xav.com web site:

Terms: Advanced

The public interface can be customized quite a bit. All of the HTML is template-based and can be easily changed to match your site's layout.

In addition, there are tons of different search options that you can enable for your visitors, like result sorting, keyword highlighting, synonym matching, and context matching (see the "Advanced Searching" section of Help for more info).

You may want to review FDSE customer sites to see how others have customized FDSE and integrated it with their site layout.


Web-Based Admin Interface

The admin interface is a secure area where you can define sets of documents to be searched (known as "realms"). You can then build the indexes for those realms, and also rebuild the indexes when the content changes.

We maintain several FDSE installs in various languages. You may log into their admin area using password "password". Most features are fully enabled, though a few are not.

Note that all languages are included in FDSE, and you can switch between languages on the fly from the web-based admin interface. The languages are only installed separately in the demo to keep things organized.

Command-Line Admin Interface

Many FDSE admin tasks can also be completed from the command line. While there aren't demos of this, there are some help files which discuss it in more detail:
