The Research Engine Get Its Own Page

The Undergraduate Research Engine now has its own homepage: research-engine.net! Of course, the code is still available for you to place the search box directly into your page. The site is hosted on Microsoft's Office Live free web hosting service. That is why there is a Microsoft Live Search option on the page.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions for the site.

Adding Options...

Hello, everyone!

When adding sites, what's the difference between the following two options:

Include all pages whose address contains this URL
(and then adding *.pbs.org/*
)[extract linked pages] [extract linked partial sites] [extract linked sites] )


Dynamically extract links from this page and add them to my search engine
(and then adding http://www.pbs.org)?

Are they the same thing?
