    I need to implement a search function on a website that will search for terms in the webpages. I would have done this using PHP but it seems that the Host doesn't provide support for this - and I'm guessing it lacks support for any other server side scripting languages.

    I know there are lots of free engines such as the Google site search but I could do with something that looks a bit more professional, rather than having Google's brand colours splashed across the results.

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers.

    How will you know what to search for (as in a form, querystring?).

    Like you mention, a server side is the best option, though javascript possible..


    http://www.javascriptkit.com/script/cut153.shtml looks suitable,

    Excellent thanks.

    The search term is provided through a form. I'd thought about javascript but couldn't find any examples like that one.
