Integration of a Search Portal

If you like to integrate YaCy as portal for your web pages, you may want to change icons and messages on the search page. The search page may be customized. You can change the 'corporate identity'-images, the greeting line and a link to a home page that is reached when the 'corporate identity'-images are clicked. To change also colours and styles use the Appearance Servlet for different skins and languages.

Greeting Line

URL of a Small Corporate Image
URL of a Large Corporate Image
Alternative text for Corporate Images

Snippet Fetch Strategy & Link Verification
ideaSpeed up search results with this option! (use CACHEONLY or FALSE to switch off verification)
NOCACHE: no use of web cache, load all snippets online
IFFRESH: use the cache if the cache exists and is fresh otherwise load online
IFEXIST: use the cache if the cache exist or load online
If verification fails, delete index reference

CACHEONLY: never go online, use all content from cache. If no cache entry exist, consider content nevertheless as available and show result without snippet
FALSE: no link verification and not snippet generation: all search results are valid without verification

The search page can be integrated in your own web pages with an iframe. Simply use the following code:

      <iframe name="target"
This would look like:

For a search page with a small header, use this code:

      <iframe name="target2"
