There are two ways to set the default result display: 1. At the individual user level: this can be done directly by the end user within the Application when the user is logged into his personal account. Note that setting this preference will not result in a global change for the Application, just for the personal account in which it is configured. 2. At the Application level (as a global change to the Application) by modifying the “displayLevel” setting in the ${APPLICATION_HOME}/www/application/searchOptions.db file. The values that can be set in this parameter are: “oneLine”, “brief” and “full”. For example, if the full display is wanted, the line within the searchOptions.db files should be: Note that the setting at the Application level is superseded by the setting at the user level.

This a normal behavior considering how Muse works and how different sites on Internet respond to consecutive searches.

A search performed in a Muse application starts at the ICE server level a number of connectors, each working on a native data service. Each such connector, as it searches the native data service and obtains records, sends these records to ICE which further sends records to the Muse application to be displayed.

So, the records come and are displayed in the Muse application www interface in the order in which they are received from the native sites and parsed. From one search to another the native sites might have different speeds of response and also the order in which the connectors are launched and run into execution may differ because they are run in parallel as threads.

Considering this, it is possible that at a second search performed in a Muse application, using the same term and on the same sources, to show records in different order.
