Sphider is an open source search php search engine, I am looking to have custom changes made. here is a link to the search engine, [url removed, login to view]~ando/sphider/ and below are the options i need added.
The Spider ---
- Follow all links but only spider pages with certain keywords. More detailed than current system, add more of an SQL query command, this way you could add url with one-word OR another-word, or one-word AND another-word, or like or not like and have the ability to combine terms.
- Pause and Resume command
- Any way to speed up spidering process? more than one running at the same time on different jobs??
The Admin ---
- Ability to delete multiple pages at the same time rather than one at a time. Add check boxes next to each entry so more than one can be selected for deletion.
- more detailed url must include or not include statements - See above spider comments.
- help setting up the cron to reindex automatically
The User Section --- NEW
- ability to create user account to save returned results or searches. It will only add that title, description, and url to thier saved section. ( just like the normal search results except these are saved to thier account )
- ability to delete saves
- ability to search only through the saved results as well.
The Front End ---
- add individual search results to saved section, each result will have a save link to add that link_id to their account
- add entire searches to saved sectioneach result will have a save link to add that keyword search to their account
- Other ---
I am open to other new ideas to make the system better and more effective. We are on a limited budget for this project and have designed much of the site ourselves, all the output has been converted to CSS and should the bid be to high we may create the user section ourselves.
