Question Search form with nvu??

Hello everyone,

I've been using Nvu 0.3 for 2 weeks now and have had to use the HTML editor more times than the actual "no html knowledge required" console. But anyway, that is not the issue; I need to implement a search button that will actually search through the other pages in my site.

*The thing is my site is within an intranet, meaning I do not actually have a domain, but more like a server address, ie: //server/website/my_website.html where all the pages the index page links to are; and which other users in the intranet can access*

I tried implementing Google's free html code that enables searching your site, but only works for domain names. The other alternatives are using a cgi or a database, etc but they are not convenient.

Is there any way at all I can implement this with Nvu? Or can someone tell me the html code i'd have to use? or some other solution...

Thank you =)

HTML is Hyper Text Markup Language, so all it really does is formatting. To search through your website, or actually all the files in your website, you'll need to use perl (cgi) or PHP to do the actual searching. You'll also want to have this stored in some database (MySQL or PostgreSQL) to reduce the amount of work that your server has to do. Your search will work better if it only has to search through the database, rather than searching through all the files for every search.

I don't know how you define convenience, but this is really the most efficient way to do it, and practically speaking, the only way. It may not be brain-dead simple, but it's not that difficult to set up a PHP-MySQL powered search function. Check out PhpDig. If you can set up Apache, you should be able to get PHP to work with MySQL without too much trouble.
