    Advanced Search Solution ?

    I've read about creating a search in PHP/MySQL and I don't have the time or expertise to create something worth putting on my site ! I've just about managed a single word search but that's it.

    Does anyone know of a script, free or purchase I don't mind, which I could easily incorporate into my site ?

    Many thanks !

    One thing you could do, is to use google to search your site.
    In google, type:
    search phrase site:www.yoursite.com
    - and google will search your site only. This can be automated. You will have a search form at your site which needs to redirect to an adress similar to this:
    http://www.google.com/ search?q=search+pharse+site:www.yoursite.com

    mySQL has a search function built in, its not great but its not terrible either.

    Look at the fulltext search tutorials, like bigalreturns says, isnt not untidy either.

    Pretty basic skill for websites these days. Learn it and love it.

    Good Luck.
