  • Quick search at top of Sitepoint

    Sitepoint have added a useful forum search box at the top of all the pages. I did have a quick look into it and it seems that the search will return results for users and the content of the forums.

    What's the best way to do this?

      Add this code in one of your templates
      --- Templates ---
      PHP Code:
      <form action="search.php" method="post">
      input type="hidden" name="s" value="$session[sessionhash]">
      input type="text" class="bginput" name="query" size="35">
      input type="hidden" name="forumchoice" value="-1">
      input type="hidden" name="action" value="simplesearch">
      input type="submit" class="bginput" name="Submit" value="Perform Search" accesskey="s">
      input type="reset" class="bginput" name="Reset" value="Reset Fields">
      You can also replace this (if you want to give users the option to choose what forums to search in)
      PHP Code:
      <input type="hidden" name="forumchoice" value="-1"
      PHP Code:
      <select name="forumchoice">
      option value="-1">Search All Open Forums</option>
      --- /Templates ---
      --- Files ---
      But then you would have to add
      PHP Code:
      in each and every PHP file that uses the template you put the form in.
      Maybe you can put the above code in global.php, but I'm not sure if that's ok.

      Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

        Hey I got it all working. But my problem seems to be that when I search, it doesn't find anything. Even things I know are there.

        Any reason this would happen?

              I do have all this working, my problem is that the search itself doesn't find anything. It says that everything you search for cant be found.

                Go there if you will. I posted my code about this matter.

                Thank you for any help. This is driving me crazy.
