The site engine needs to be re-coded from a scratch. A new XML-based "root text format" needs to be developed. Full text search engine needs to be employed. I have a production schema for the new engine I need to start working on.

Gaudiya Grantha Mandira : Grantha Mandira redeveloped!

The Gaudiya Grantha Mandira has, since a long time, been running on an old, unworthy site engine that hasn't had the flexibility to be adapted to all our needs. Moreover, some aspects of the outdated code just fell to pieces last autumn with a software update, leaving some aspects of the site unusable.

The phoenix is rising from the ashes at last. A new and wonderful Gaudiya Grantha Mandira is in the works, and a great deal of functionality is already online! Please take it for a test drive and send us your precious feedback.
