I have web app search functionality implemented with BC standart tools here:
It works fine and is acceptable to some extent but lacks the possibility to some smarter search algorithm than just matching fields. For instance I need results to show WORLDWIDE talents even if search is performed to match United Kingdom value. This was not possible with dropdown lists but is possible with listbox. So I had to change 600 talents data input format and make other quite sophisticated and kind of odd implementations to make this work. For instance now every talent has to have "Any" value to the country field and when search is performed hiden country field has to have "WORLDWIDE" value prepopulated.
Pagination is limited too so I wanted an advice if anyone knows some smart jquery or ajax plugin to be able to make all the searching, filtering and paging be able to do what already there in the page provided ant more. I would probably need to combine these plugins.
Any suggestions and ideas are welcome
