Hi,

Could anybody please help me out, or point me in the right direction.

I am wanting to implement a search bar on my web site like the one at www.atomi.co.uk where it has no ads and you dont have to leave the site and you dont have to see the results at a different page.

Please can anybody help me out here, it would be much appreciated.

I do have quite a bit of web design experience, but internal site search bars are totally new to me.

Cheers
David

Hi Dave,
Ok well it's fairly simple. I'm not sure 100% what type of search you want but if it's just against a product data base then all you need is a textbox and a submit button. When the button is clicked it runs some code that performs a simple query against the database and then you output your results in an HTML format.
If your looking for a search that will search all the pages and documents then i think some other members can probably beter advise you than me.
