Search facility in website

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I run a website, and I have basic HTML knowledge. I was just wondering if it
is easy'ish to implement a search facility into the site, where someone can
search for something and it displays the images?

Is it something a novice can do or does it involve another language?

To have search capabilities in place, you can use Ht://Dig < or the more modern PhpDig < /

to an amateur, so be warned. If you Web sites is or has been thouroughly
crawled by major search engines, you can use these for site search, which
is also easier to implement -- or shall I say -- to incorporate.

Look, for example, at the source of the following page < >, then copy relevant bits, modifying
them to suit your purpose.

You needn't program anything. Many search facilities have been implemented
already. You just need to 'plug some in' using the interfaces or using some
known API's.

Hope it helps,
