    Hi, I am a newbie and would like to add a search box to my website. I tried using google's custom search box, but unfortunately, javascript is not allowed on the website. So, I can't copy and paste the code generated by google. Is there a workaround for this? Is there any way I can get a search box on my website without using javascript?

    would appreciate any help in this regard

    You need to use a server-side script such as PHP.
    How much knowledge do you have with that?

    And, do you have a database? Usually, searches are
    associated with databases, not static HTML pages.

    Not sure how many pages you have ... but is it really
    worth having a search? If you have a lot of content,
    you should be using a database (CMS) anyhow, so
    we're back to the beginning about searching a database.

    Give us the URL to your site so we can see what you're searching for.

    Actually, this is just a website which I had to make using a fixed set of templates (something like google sites). My hands were really tied, couldn't actually use any imagination. However, I don't know anything about php scripts.

    A search box may not be necessary and may even be stupid because there isn't really a lot of stuff on my site, but I am just interested in adding it because the course instructor said the more innovative we get with the site, the more credit I get. That's why I was interested in getting a search box on my site, kinda looks professional.

    My website is something like this:

    This is not my website since I am still in the process of building some of the webpages, but the final website would look something like the one above. This is my friend's website. Its a public website, so there's no need for privacy concerns.
