I would be happy to see more info about the search function and particularly the ranking.

Are you looking to learn more about WWHelp search in general? Seems like this is separate from the Optimizer. Is that correct?
I finally had the time to use the Optimizer. It seems to have worked Benchmark Data. I used Firebug as was recommended. Can you explain why the number of requests change after an upload (just wondering)? Two things:
Optimizer Breaks WWP Search Engine
After using the script, I can't perform a single search. I had an example in production, but had to revert back to pre-Optimizer output because customers had to have their search functionality. wwhbdata folder was being created.
Oh WAIT! I revisited the Optimizer page. Apparently I DO have the older script installed (I renamed the folder). Totally my fault. I grabbed the GET file at the top of the list. I went to reinstall the script and that's when I noticed. This has got to be the problem. I'll report back. -- AngelaAkridge
Search is working fine under the latest script. Thank you.-- AngelaAkridge
Need Better Performance
Angela, I created a table containing your performance data on the More Examples page. One thing that I'm seeing is that you should consider adding expiration dates to your .js files. I tested with YSlow and it shows your server sets short lived expiration dates on your .js files. Recommend you modify your server configuration ala the Server Configuration section.-- BenAllums
I'm in the process of having my engineering group change the configuration. Are there any negative consequences to have a longer expiration period?-- AngelaAkridge
The Engineering group made the suggested server modifications, but I'm not seeing any noticeable difference in performance unfortunately. Is there a way to have specific files load first, namely the navigation and first page? Any other performance tuning tips would be much appreciated. -- AngelaAkridge
I just ran YSlow. Would it be safe to apply expirations for these too:
There are 6 static components without a far-future expiration date.
That shouldn't be a problem Angela.
I am getting errors in the optimized WWH thatI do not see in the merged output. The precise errors vary according to the browser I use.
Error on page for every page in the WWH. "Line: 2 Char: 1 Error: Invalid character Code: 0 URL: file:///C:/Program%20Files/Instantiations/VA%20Smalltalk/8.0/help/hd/howdoi.html" However, the HTML looks well formed.

Error only for some pages, e.g. instgd27.html Error: Permission denied to get property XULElement.accessibleType file:///D:/Documents/VAS-Mergedb117postopt/wwhelp/wwhimpl/common/scripts.js Line: 1119
If you have access, WebWorks Case #00008739 has some attachments. of the specific files.
A couple of questions. First, what version of ePublisher are you running? Second, can you attach the help set files/examples to this page?
