A colleague has asked that a global search box be added to our Moodle. - Kind of something one might expect as being present as standard.
Moodle includes a Search Fora block of course, but that ignores uploaded files, pages etc. etc.
Strangely the Global Search block info page here:
...shows that Global Search is compatible with Moodle 2.0. - It's certainly not compatible with Moodle 2.3.
Is there a way of implementing a Global Search in Moodle, without having to link to an outside search facility which might compromise security etc.?
