Searching with Views

Although the Advanced Search form allows quite a bit of control for users, it's very difficult for us to change how that page appears and control how the results are displayed. It also can present a daunting array of options, especially when a site has lots of taxonomy terms.

The Views module is one way to exercise more control over searching: its filters can narrow down lists of content based on words indexed by the search system. A view might list only blog posts mentioning kittens, for example. For the Super Duper Chefs site, we'll be using this module to add custom filtering to our Product finder page.
