One of the biggest problems that I faced recently was trying to come up with a good solution to create an indexed search database across multiple intranet formats. Along with static HTML pages, we use WordPress to host intranet news and some content management, wikis are used to hold frequently changing information that users can edit themselves, and network shares are utilized in some cases. Although each of these technologies often presents a tool to search their own implementation, I wanted something to index all of them with one interface to search from. Otherwise, a user has to know which Web site or format the material is in and then go search using each individual search feature.
