    We need more information ....

    1) Is your site made up of "static" HTML pages, or dynamically generated using PHP?

    2) Does your site involve any databases?

    3) Can you give us a link to your site so we can see how it's layed-out?

    4) Can you use PHP scripting? (you know how, and your webhost allows PHP)?

    OK, I hope I'm not making this too hard for you becasue my site doesn't actually exist, I'm just kind of planning it and I thought it would be good to put a site search in there and was wondering how to do it.
    My site wouldn't (at least for a while) include databases, I would want my web host to support PHP but I don't know it but I could easily learn it as I'm a fast learner with these things.
    It would be static HTML.
    I've heard you can use Javascript and PHP to do it - which would be better and easier?
    Thanks for your help. :classic:

    PHP would be better of course.

    There are many PHP scripts already written that
    search static pages for key words.

    You should put some thought into that database thing.

    Depending on what your site is about, you may want your
    whole site to be Joomla based ... a CMS (content management system),
    that allows content to be added, searches, RSS feeds, blogs, selling
    things online, etc.

    Do some research about Joomla using Google and see other sites
    that use Joomla.

    Here is one Joomla site that comes to my mind:
    http://www.graphic3.net

    It's run by Kade ... a regular to WDF
