Help creating search and results function for my site. Please help!
I'm making an eCommerce/PayPal website for some products I'm selling. The website is currently built with PHP and HTML.
I want to add a search box so people can search for what the specifically want - then the results page will display a list of the products with links to the products' individual pages.
From what I understand this will almost certainly need to be database driven. My only problem is that I barely know where to start.
I've created a database on my host and have created dummy pages of how I want everything to look.
Each product will need 3-5 search terms attached to them.
Can someone please tell me where to begin and how difficult what I want to achieve will be?
Thank you and I hope to hear from you.
Are the products already broken down into categories with as many subcategories as needed?
