In Admin settings the method of chronological order for result listing can be defined.

Results ordered by:

- Relevance (weight)

- Main URLs (domains) on top

- First URL names and then weight

- Only top 2 per URL

The mode of chronological order for result listing is shown as additional headline on top of the result pages. To be activated in Admin settings.

Select method of highlighting for found keywords in result listing.

If 'Advanced search' is activated, the user may select:

- bold text

- marked yellow

- marked green

- marked blue

The default highlighting can be defined in Admin settings.

If in Admin settings the option ' Index words in Domain Name and URL path' is activated, found keywords now are highlighted also in result listing (row URL).

If in users browser JavaScript is disabled, a warning message is displayed on top of the search form that full functionality of Sphider-plus will not be available (required for the suggest framework).

Improved printout for 'Show sites in category'. If in Admins 'Site options' the content for 'title' was not included, now title and short-description will be fetched from the HTML header (of the indexed sites). If also this information is not available, a warning message will be displayed.

Enable index and re-index for pages with duplicate content.

Additional item in Admin settings:

- If selected, pages with content that was already indexed by another page will also be indexed/re-indexed. A warning message together with the URL that also holds the duplicate content will be presented in spider log output.

- If not selected, the link (page) will be ignored. Never the less the message and URL info will be presented.

Improved function 'If available follow sitemap.xml' in order to prevent 'Page is duplicate' messages.

Improved printout if PDF files cause indexing problems.

If 'Follow sitemap.xml' is activated and a valid sitemap was found, the log output

Links found: 0 - New links: 0

is no longer shown. Because all links are delivered from the sitemap file and new links are not searched during index / re-index.

An eventually non-existing log folder will be created automatically during index / re-index process. So, the message 'Logging option is set, but cannot open a file for logging.' will be prevented.

If in Admin browser JavaScript is disabled, a warning message is displayed on top of Admin page that full functionality of Sphider-plus administration will not be available (required for warning messages).

Updated Romanian language file by CyBerNet.

Corrected Spanish language file by Willy.

Bug fixed in index / re-index function that caused problems to index words which consist only of upper case characters.

Bug fixed in index / re-index function that caused problems to index words containing the ' à ' character.

Some small improvements for result printout.

Length of words to be indexed is increased to 255 characters per word.
