Phillip Pearson has added a search engine to the Python Community Server, an open-source clone of Radio's hosting server written in Python.

To support searching weblog entries, he's implementing a new XmlStorageSystem method, mirrorPosts, which Radio and other tools could use to add an entry to the search engine.

If you're a Radio user who is outgrowing the Radio Community Server or Salon Blogs, changing to the Python Community Server is pretty simple. I'm using Pycs for comments and trackback here and began Workbench on that server before publishing to my own server with FTP.

I just sent this to Phil:

on your page:
www.pycs.net/notes/stories/2002/04/03/howToTellRadioToUseThisServer.html

you have the link to Just go to the changeCommunityServer page set to:

localhost:5335/system/pages/changeCommunityServer

at least on Mac OS 9, that doesn't work. this does:

127.0.0.1:5335/system/pages/changeCommunityServer


 

Ahh, so there was a reason for using 127.0.0.1.

On my Windows 2000 machine, 127.0.0.1 was doing something weird, but localhost worked fine. Radio defaults to 127.0.0.1 though.

I've changed the links in that article.
