    You can look for ready made solutions on cut and paste sites for Javascript, Perl, PHP or ASP. I can't recommend a particular script or technology unless you let me know what your needs and capabilities are.

    Hi! Thanks for answering!

    I will be working on sites (UNIX server) where content is extensive, consisting of lists and sub-lists, articles, etc. In fact, the sites may even be candidates for publishing via database (which is another area I need basics in!).

    In the interim, a site search to enable visitors to find specific items/information seem to be a plan.

    Many thanks,
    NAL

    Check out cgi.resourceindex.com. They have over 1600 PERL scripts that can automate any facet of your site, including several well regarded searching scripts.

    For learning about new technologies I suggest you start at www.articlecentral.com. This is a comprehensize site covering articles from all over the internet. For books you might check out Wrox Publishing at www.wrox.co.uk and look at thier extensive list of titles.
