Hi Experts,

I'm new to Dreamweaver CS5 and using CSS, and HTML5.

How can I add a search tab at the top of a new website to then search all of the HTML pages within the website root folder for the matching content?

Pref without using MS SQL.

Thanks,

DJM

Databases are ideal for this sort of thing because searching gets very simple.  But if your content is not served by a db, then you have a few options:

1) Use Google Custom Search to create a search form and results page that only looks at the Google-indexed pages on your site.  This is great if your site is well-indexed however Google will run ads on the results.

2) Use Bing or other, 2nd tier, search engines to do the same thing.  YMMV.

3) Use a search script that creates its own index based on rules you give it.  I used to use http://www.htdig.org/ for this before moving all my sites to a CMS and removing the need for my own spider.
