Web Devout now has a native search engine to help users explore the site.
The search engine uses a link weighting algorithm similar to Google’s PageRank, as well as over 10 other factors to help get the most relevant results at the top. I made the engine from scratch for this site, and it currently only accepts simple queries (most common operators aren’t yet supported), but I will continue working to improve it in the future.
Standard search operators such as AND, OR, |, and & are now supported, as well as double quotes for term grouping and parentheses for query grouping.
