Hi,

Im looking to build a website search that searches a variety of database fields in multiple tables.
I have a main category table and a sub category table, both stores main page content and descriptions, names etc. When someone types in computer for example, i want the selected fields in both tables to be searched and then return the results to the search.php page.
Example of Database Tables

Category
-----------
category_id
category_name
category_content

Sub Category
sub_category_id
sub_category_name
sub_category_content

HTML Form for Search on index.php
----------------------------------
<form  method="get" action="search.php" id="search-form">
<label for="search">Website Search</label>
<input name="search" type="text" value="" />
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Search" id="search-button">
</form>
