Customizing Search Form

I have two questions.  First, is there a way to make the search form one line?  i.e.

search <form input> search <button> reset <button> instead of alwasy having it on one line?

Secondly, Can you make a template page for the search form results, or have the search form in a left hand links cell and show the results in a different table cell?

or, does anyone know if frontpage 2002 has a better site search capability than frontpage 2000 which would solve this issue with upgrading the software?

Thanks,
eWhisper

The best way to customize a form's layout is to code the HTML source yourself.

Try this
<form action="second_page.asp" method="post">
<font face="Arial">Search:&nbsp;</font>
<input type="text" name="txtSearch">
<br>
<input type="submit" value="Search">
&nbsp;&nbsp;
<input type="reset" value="Reset">
</form>

eWhisper,

Frontpage search cannot be customized very easily since it uses the FP Web Bots.  The best thing to do is use ASP to search your site.  Then you can design the results page the way you like it.  Are you using the indexing feature on your site?  This is set up on the server side.  It makes the searches more accurate and up to date.  Let me know and I can get you some code.

You can't do much with FP Search but if you want to work within FrontPage and don't know much coding...

there are two FrontPage Search Addons... they are too buy but they don't cost that much.

mysearch from http://outfront.net  

and

lurch search from http://frontpagetools.com

it depends on your server considerations if they are right for you... check them out.

Lurch Search and Mysearch both require NT servers.  I am using a linux server.  Does anyone know of a program that will run on a linux server?

The reason I use frontpage is not because I don't know how to code, its for the hyperlink verification, and the fact if I reorganize pages, frontpage auto reconfigures all the pages without having to do global find/replaces on all the pages in the DB, and will verify all the external hyperlinks so I can fix or remove links to pages that no longer exist.

Thanks,
