php and searches?!?

Postby ericehle » Thu Jan 23, 2003 10:54 pm

I was looking at , and I was trying to create a search similar to what they did on their news search, althought I am not able to use mysql on my webserver(so I am told but can use php). Any info on how they did this or what steps to take to head in the right direction is more than appreciated. The source code is below but not sure what it is exactly doing and how to make it work for me. Any suggestions are more than appreciated.

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function pageSearch(iVal) {
document.forms[0].currPage.value = iVal;

<form action="news-search.php" method="post" name="dik_search">

I hate to tell you this, but if you can't use mySql on your webserver, you're going to have a really tough time making this work.

What is it that you want to be able to search, and what format is it in now? Do you have stuff in text files, or what? Let us know and we'll see if we can figure something out.
