    Search Feature for Dynamic data website

    I want to add a search feature for a website I'm building. I would like to be able to search for through multiple tables for things like usernames, film titles, film descriptions, ect. However, all of the content is stored in a mysql database and generated dynamically with php. How can I add a search feature under these conditions?

    Take a look at Google Adsense, they have ready made search boxes which are quite easy to add to a site and give Google an insentive to frequently crawl the site.

    But there is nothing to crawl. As I said before: I would like to be able to search for through multiple tables for things like usernames, film titles, film descriptions, ect. However, all of the content is stored in a mysql database and generated dynamically with php. How can I add a search feature under these conditions?

    >>> But there is nothing to crawl
    Google will build a set of search results on the page submissions they receive.

    >>> ...content is stored in a mysql database and generated dynamically with php.
    If your require help in generating forms and queries then ask the Mod to move this thread to either "PHP" or "Databases & MySQL" section.
