Working with the search web bot in FP 2002.
Posted on 2003-02-25
This has been an issues since the dawn of front page i belive. I am working on a web site and i do not have enough time to get an operating perl or IIS search engine running, so i have resorted to Front Pages built in crap. I say crap because thats just what it is. Why did they go cheap with their search engine here? Anyways, the way ti is set up now, i have tables and this search is in one of the tables. Now when you make a new page and add the search web component, and after publishing, the search will post the results in the same page, using the shtml.dll security file etc. etc. What I need here is to have some way to display the results in a new page, or at least clear the current page and display the results fresh, so that they do not crap up the current page the search is on. Is this possible? Otherwise i guess i'm going to try to figure out IIS and Index Server, or install php or perl, but i would just like to keep this minimal and use front pages bult in search.
Thank you all,
