    search site

    Can anybody suggest the beth method to put a "search" in a site. I have the Google free search thing, but I don't really want the advertising of Google and it doesn't really provide good search results from the page. PHP? Perl? Javascript?

    Thanks.

    can't do it. I'm looking for free as it's a small non-profit site (15 pages?). They want the search, although I don't think it's necessary. The pricing only is free for personal use. And the $100 isn't in the budget for a search script.

    As I said...for personal use:

    Atomz Express Search is perfect for individual or personal Web sites that need fast and accurate search results in a quick and easy way.

    I'm sure it's a great search, but I can't use it free. The site is for a non-profit org...which needless to say is not personal use.

    If you have access to PHP, it would be really easy. Does your 15 page site run on MySQL (probably a stupid question, but why not ask anyway)? If so, it's crazy EASY! If not, you could rig something up with PHP; shouldn't be too difficult I think.

    It's not entirely in MySQL....some, only a part, is. The rest are standard htm files.

    Well, for the MySQL part simply do a select query:
    PHP Code:
    <?php
    mysql_query
    ("select $page from <<tablename>> where text like "%$keyword%");
    ?>
    Well -- you get my drift.

    For the .htm files, I was thinking about something. I'm not versed much in the file manipulation capabilities of PHP, but could you not open the pages using fopen() and do a search through there and somehow throw out the results? Since it is a rather small site I don't see why this couldn't be done.

    even with 15 pages, that sounds like alot of PHP processing power....
