Search Engine Script situation

    I have been working real hard to add a search to my website for my own pages, b not the one offered by google free or others, rather one I can serve from my domain. I have been looking for scripts such as Altavista search engine 3.0 and such untill I came across Digitalpoint website and saw Shawns script. I was able to install the search.php and the rest of the components to make it work, but I don't know how to edit the header or footer.php files to make the results page look like the rest of my website including pictures, tables, banners and so on, all I get is the results. Can someone poitn me to the right direction on how to edit the header.php file and footer if needed. I am new with php and have spent a full day trying to figure it out. Any help will be greatly appreciated. :eek:

    You should be able to edit it with a normal HTML editor if you don't need any PHP functionality within the header/footer. Unless you add the PHP tags, it will simply include it as raw HTML.

    I suggest copying one of your current pages and editing it via a WYSIWYG editor or so. Make sure to include a short reminder sentence like "this is where my results will go". This is where your search results will show up later on.

    If you are done save this file and open it with notepad.
    Find "this is where my results will go" and delete it. After that you have to split your file into 2: everything in front of that sentence goes to your header.php, the rest goes to footer.php
