    Creating a search feature for webiste

    Hey All,

    Basically what I want to do is create a search box so when a visitor puts in a keyword and hits search it will then list a page with all links to all pages that have that keyword.

    I knew of a software program that did that but I cannot find it anywhere.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks In Advance

    Assuming you don't want to redesign the wheel check out: Google Custom Search - Site search and more. It's free and will allow you to make use of Google's index of your site to perform local searches.

    I would rather not use Google to do this. I appreciate the info though.

    If I am not mistaken the program I used was CoffeeCup Website Search, but its not available any longer as I can see.
    Thanks In Advance

    Does your site utilize .NET or PHP so you can implement a search component?

    Depends on what your site is built on. Platforms like wordpress/Joomla have their in built search feature, similar to what you want.

    To build a search feature that will search your webpages, you would need to have the content indexed or in your database for your search program to search efficiently.
