Placing "search facility" on web page

  louandel 12:17 18 Jun 2006

I am just updating my cat website and wanting to provide a cat photo album of pictures people send in. To allow people to go to the pictures they wish I can either place a search facility or perhaps easier an alphabet at top of page leading to relevant pics. Would these involve a knowledge of java script? I have no problems with html and css and use dreamweaver.

Thanx for any ideas

A few "Web Design" magazines have covered this in the past. You could add a Google Search facility but not sure wether this covers images. The only reason I say this is you could type the image name in but it might only cover text.

Also a link to the site please so that we can have a look at it?

I havent really started the photos page as i need to know how it is going to be structured first. I don't understand how google search would be useful for me. I just need a place where surfer can place thier cats name or whatever and it would link to a page in the one of the pages of the album

The Google site search add-in does exactly that. It searches the web as well with the click of a radio button, but that's incidental.

There is another site search add-in that was recommended to me recently (by barryoneoff I think). If I can find the thread, I'll give you the link.

I've been through six pages of Webdesign threads in My Postings and I can't find it! I knew I should have bookmarked it at the time.....

Thanks for all your trouble ade.

However I must be stupid. I still dont understand how i can transfer this add on to my web page?

this one (which I found via adeh btw and I think that's the one barryoneoff suggested) I put it on my sites and it searches and finds photos too and it is really really here

That's the one. Well done, mco!
