searching site content

    Hi Everyone!! I’m just getting into CSS ..HAMMERING the tutorials, it’s coming along fine but i’ve hit abit of a wall.
    I want customers to be able to narrow down a search to what they want to see

    eg. <make of car>
    <price MIN>
    <priceMAX>
    <LOCATION>

    then after all desired fields are selected and you click <<SEARCH>>

    after that you have what your looking for. What is this called..so i know what to search for and learn how to
    apply it to my site….i just dragged this off a website source, is this it? how do i get started??

    any help whould be greatly appreciated..Thanks

    A fine question, though I don’t have an answer for you.

    To clarify, it will have nothing to do with CSS, you’ll need to learn a new acronym! You’ll probably want to dip into some PHP, though I don’t know of a "search" PHP Tutorial.

    normally I would do this in PHP and use a database with a simple mysql query… like

    Code:
    SELECT * FROM tablename WHERE colName1 LIKE ‘%keywords_entered%’ OR colName2 LIKE ‘%keywords_entered’%

    other than that, like doc, I dunno.
