    Default Re: Is there a Search function for a site?

    It worked! Thanks. It pulled up only pages that had the search term in the title. But like a typical newbie, I then realized that people might also search for words not part of the film name, and that I had now excluded everything else. So I ended up going full circle by just using the WD widget for Google search.

    Since this is my own fan site, no harm done and the time spent was a learning experience. I actually only do fan-type sites like this for myself, and have never done a site for anyone else besides my wife, since WD makes them simple. I really appreciate the feedback and solution.

    This is certainly cool, but I do not like the fact that the results take you out and away from the page you were searching from and not truly built in to the page you were trying to navigate through.
    Oh well,...you can't have it all now can you? STILL,... it did work.

    With a sleight of hand you can embed the search page results into a Placeholder if you wanted to have a specific search page. You could make the search result open a new page so you do not lose the current breadcrumb.

    Go one better. Build a concordance of your key words or phrase across the site with the page title and design in some JavaScript magic to deliver autocompleting of a word or phrase. This probably needs to be a Dear Xara...
