Search form

MBOE asked
Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-12-24
My search page is not working in FrontPage 2003.  I inserted a web component and then web search.
I then asked it to search the specific folder within my web and I also tried All.   Neither are working.
This is what I get in return:

No documents found. Please try again.

It may take several minutes for recently saved documents to appear in the search

I called the company that hosts my web and they do have the FrontPage 2002 extensions installed.

I don't have a reply to your problem,  but must say that the search engine they provide is weak.

I used it twice,  even when I get results I do not get what I was looking for.

The best is to create a search form of your own using ASP and the Database.

You can store all the names of your pages,  any details also word search.  This way you can also make sure that the web search does not show results that others should not see.

if you want to use the FP search form, your host has to have the extensions enabled as well as indexing service for your web server.
