Kentico CMS for ASP.NET Gets Enterprise-Class Search Capabilities

Nashua, New Hampshire, USA, August 17, 2009 – Kentico Software (, the Web content management system vendor, today released a new version 4.1 of Kentico CMS for ASP.NET. The new version comes with revamped, enterprise-class search engine and with many user productivity improvements.

The new search engine enables site owners to make their web content searchable so that the site visitors can easily find information about their products and services. The search engine provides extremely fast search results with ranking, previews, thumbnail images and customizable filters. The site owners can decide which parts of the site, which content types and which content fields are searchable. The search engine leverages the popular Lucene search framework.

The new version also improves business user productivity by optimizing the way the users upload and insert images into the text. The optimized user interface now enables insertion and resizing of images in a few clicks. The uploaded images can be part of the page life cycle. When the page is removed from the site, the related images and attachments are also removed which helps organizations avoid invalid or expired content on their server.

Other improvements were made to the management of multi-lingual web sites. Kentico CMS for ASP.NET now supports workflow configuration based on the content language and it allows administrators to grant editors with permissions to chosen language versions. Content editors can easily see, which documents are not translated or their translation is not up-to-date.

"The new search engine provides enterprise-class search capabilities, with high number of configuration options, excellent performance and great search results," explains Martin Hejtmanek, Kentico CTO. "The new search engine with customizable filters and search queries adds a huge value especially to clients who need to enable fast and accurate search in their structured web site content, such as product catalogs or on-line stores," he adds.
