hi,
i'm new to it i mean new to minibb

is there any addon for search bar
like if there are several hundreds of posts in forum how may i search any particular post with some subject or content.....?

i guess putting a search bar for searching forums or web in it will go.

Do you mean, in general, external search bar, Google-like? Or something else? I don't think it's difficult to emulate simple search field, basing on what we have in default / advanced search...

yes i mean a simple search bar to search contents of the forum/posts

if i need to find words "script", "minibb", etc etc.. in here minibb how may i find related therad or discussion already going on..?

hence, a simple / advanced search will be doing good for the members ..

"Paul u got it right"

this feature should be added..

thanks

Why are you unhappy with default search page?

Anyway, here is the HTML code which you can paste in main_header.html, for example:


<form action="http://www.minibb.com/forums/index.php?" method="get" class="formStyle" >

<input name="phrase" type="text" size="15" maxlength="50" class="textForm" value="" />

<input type="hidden" name="searchType" value="0" />
<input type="hidden" name="where" value="0" />
<input type="hidden" name="forum" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="search" />
<input type="hidden" name="searchGo" value="1" />

<input type="submit" value="Quick Search" class="inputButton" /> <a href="#">Advanced search</a>

</form>


I think there is nothing to implement in default version, 'cause everybody needing this can paste this code himself. We don't want to overload our software with duplicated pieces.

There is different code for Google search. This solution is only for miniBB's internal search.

There may be lots of variations on how to provide Google search, and it strictly depends on the structure of your website and forum. This is a custom solution and we don't have common code for it.

when user clicks on search..

it shows same search bar.. but the type of search for topics or messages be like google searching method..

Google Site Search...

like some sites I saw:

http://www.dreamhost.com/search-results.html?cx=011120016198691228383:bahihswpl0y&cof=FORID:11&ie=UTF-8&q=host&sa=Search &siteurl=www.dreamhost.com/

it's google custom search but inside the site..

I don't have problem with custom solution :-p

Thanks

So if you study "Google Custom Search" guides, you may learn from them how to create this script :-)

I guess it may be done also simpler way - custom PHP script may send Google request via file_get_contents() function, parse results and display them on a page. I guess it could be about 3-4 hours of work to implement it in total, regarding our rates.

But for this you must be sure that your website is well indexed in Google.

How could I explain it to a non-coder? :-) Follow Google guides, edit your code...
