I guess it's pretty easy if you know what you're doing, which i don't but I have a mate who wants to add a simple search bar to his page so that people can search on a word (duh) and it will do it's thing. I can PM the page to anyone who might be able to give some pointers, it's a pretty basic from what I can see but as I said, I know nuzink..I am capable of learning though. :)

Thanks

Thanks.

Will that enable them to search for specific keywords on their page? Like if a person wanted to search for everything on the site related to 'fish' for example could they type 'fish' into that CSE that you linked to?

Cheers

Afaik, yes. I've never used it, so I can't provide any information on implementation, etc. But I bet if you ask someone will have more answers.

OK cheers,

I'll run it past them, they might not like the ads but who knows? If not I thought there'd be a quick bit of code I could add that would enable search on the particalr site...but then I know pretty much nothing about the subject too, might be a good time to start. ;)

There's gotta be a websites for dummies page out there somewhere.

Cheers

is there some way you can embed a com control in the web page to use the browsers inbuilt find? (aka ctrl+f)

I know back in the days of Windows 95, and the free version of front page that came with 95 plus there was an search element you could embed in the page that did the exact same thing.

what robzy said. Other than that there are numerous search plugins for different CMS's such as wordpress, umbraco, sitecore, and what not, each tailored to the way the particular CMS stores data. It would help if you could give that info. If it's just a basic html website, then use google.

Yeah I forwarded that on and it's a definite possibility for them. AFAIK it's just a HTML website but like I said at the start, what I know about writing webpages you could fit into a box of matches...without taking out the matches.

Like what's a CMS for e.g.?

Or if anyone can point me to a website where complete dummies can go and learn to be l33t webmasters then that'd be appreciated too.

Cheers

The altavista web master site is no longer around, so you have to suffer with stuff that sucks.

When i was learning about web development you had xoom for your unlimited storage, and bandwidth, and alatvista for babble fish, and web master tools.
