Hi.
I use Perlfect Search to index my weekly newsletter =
(http://www.thecornerforum.org).
I'm wondering if there's any way to sort the results of searches by =
filename, instead of by the regular ranking system.
For my purposes, I'd rather display the results in chronological order =
(the filenames are ordered chronologically, e.g. =
http://www.thecornerforum.org/data/0010010.htm precedes =
http://www.thecornerforum.org/data/0033000.htm) than by # of times the =
terms appear in the files, or where in the file they appear.
Is this possible?
(I don't display the "dates" of the files on the search page because I =
sometimes have to reload the files -- and then the files' dates are no =
longer the original dates of the newsletter's publication.)
Thank you very much.
