SDN Search just got a bit better

We just pushed another small enhancement for our updated search now featuring “top results” functionality.
Coveo is not only a great search engine, but it also gives you plenty of reporting about what users search for on the website which is absolutely critical for such a resource as SDN.
We learnt that most searches are related with “fundamental” keyword, “sitecore security” and “media” so we picked out the most relevant documentation and instructed Coveo search to put them at the top of the list.
Check it out ;-)

Thank you for the feedback we got so far and of course, more enhancements are coming soon.

Favorites and Links not working

Just noticed a minor issue in 6.1 with Favorites and Links buttons from the Navigate tab not working.
To fix that, simply go to the “core” database and clear our the “command” field for both items:
/sitecore/content/Applications/Content Editor/Ribbons/Chunks/Navigate/Links
/sitecore/content/Applications/Content Editor/Ribbons/Chunks/Navigate/Favorites

Good that everything is so (re)configurable in Sitecore ;-)

-  Ability to search Sitecore Community Blogs and Shared Source Library.
- Save search results as RSS and keep yourself updated.
