Blog Search now (partially?) working in TheAquarium

Thanks to the folks at Blogs.Sun.Com for fixing a pesky bug
with the search arrangement that was affecting TheAquarium.


I've moved the search button so it now shows in the first page.
There are several desireable improvements to search, probably the top two being a relevance vs date sorting, and showing the titles of the hits, but search is quite important in a large blog like this one.

Oops! I've looked more carefully and I see that the categories are creating many unwanted
hits,
and also that the date of all the hits is Jan 17th. Well, partial search is - in this case - better than
no search at all, so I'm going to leave the search button in the new location, and let's keep trying...

Community,

    I see some hits with Jan 18th, so I suspect the date is the indexing date, not the creation date, which possibly may be the same under normal conditions except when the indexing got started the first time (yesterday for us), or when the entry is modified. So that part seems reasonable.
    The extraneous hits seem to come from including the categories in the per-entry presentation. We should be able to fix that by modifying some template; we will look into it in the next couple of days.

    Between the search.sun.com and the blogs.sun.com teams, we have some search improvments coming soon.
