Supports placing all data in the module into the DNN-Search. This works for simple items (like title/text/image) as well as for lists. The special feature is that it allows you to change how the index works. You could specify an alternate (detail-page) url for each item. (added 06.02.00)

Once you apply a list to a template, you suddenly have multile items presented - maybe as a table or as a designed list. What you then often need is a way to add a title before that or create settings for the way the list is presented. (added 03.00.00)
