    Why is there no ranking in the Find Database search results page?

    The MetaLib ranker is incorporated in the creation of merged sets.
    When you run a QuickSearch or a MetaSearch, MetaLib always creates a merged set to present the results. This can be a merged set of several resources or just one resource but the "merge set" is always invoked.
    When searching in a single resource after finding it in Find DB, MetaLib uses a different function to present the results of just one resource.
    If you would like to get ranked results for a single resource, add it to your databases list in the My Space module and then perform a MetaSearch with this specific database.
