Having just installed htdig I am wondering what your problem with it
is? Perhaps the install is incomplete? I have one list where I have not
yet modified the archive pages to NOT index the subject heading of the next
and last post, and the results for a search are therefore pretty
useless. But that was my fault, and when I fix it they results will be
much better. If you install htdig on a system with existing lists you will
need to make some changes to several files in existing lists before it will
work right. I'm just now doing this, so I can't give you the details.
The other things is that htdig is very powerful, and as is the case
with most things the more powerful it is the more understanding a person
has to have to make it do what they want. We have been made lazy by places
like Google that allow us to do "+ big + dog" instead of "big AND dog", and
a lot of folks have no clue what an Boolean operand is.
I have not yet looked, but I suspect there is a good little how to
that I can link to for my users. By offering them some information on how
to harness the real power of htdig I will save myself a lot of hassle!
