Search Form in Frontpage 2002

  gazmania 00:30 19 May 2005

Frontpage provides a template and standard form component for searching websites. It works efficiently, but annoyingly the standard form displays the "search" box with the "submit" & "reset" boxes one line below.
I would prefer to have all 3 boxes on the same line. Is this possible?

Should be possible, but not sure exactly how Frontpage works.

How about creating a table with one row and three columns and putting each element in its own cell.

The individual components do not appear to move independently. Does anyone have any experience with site searches?

I'm just a novice. If John can't crack it, should I give up?

Create a html form manually with what u want and then use Matt's Script Archive
click here


Use php to process the forms, its quite easy if u google a tutorial and ur site is hosted on some decent webspace with php support.

An Example Script i found:


//This is the location of your sendmail variable
//if you don't know, contact your sysadmin
$mail_path = "/usr/sbin/sendmail -i -t";

//The email address to be receiving emails from this form
$mail_to = "[email protected]";

//the subject of the email sent by the form
$mail_subject = "Contact Form";

//the name of the buisness or website that the form contacts
$buisness_name = "Stargeek";

//this is the html of the form used to create the email
$form_html = '$html = "
To Contact $buisness_name:
<form action=\"$PHP_SELF\" method=\"post\">
<table class=\"mainText\" border=\"0\" cellspacing=\"5\">
<td>Your Name: </td>
<td>$name </td>
<td>Your Email Address:</td>
<td colspan=\"2\" align=\"center\">Your Message</td>
<td colspan=\"2\" align=\"center\">$message</td>
<td colspan=\"2\" align=\"center\">$send</td>
Script by <a href="click here">Stargeek</a>

ini_set("sendmail_from", $mail_from);
ini_set("sendmail_path", $mail_path);

if ($_POST)
if( mail($mail_to,$mail_subject,"\t From: ".$_POST['userName']."\n \t Email: ".$_POST['userEmail']. "\n\n\n\n".stripslashes($_POST['userMessage']).'this email was generated by <a href="click here">Stargeek</a>\'s script'.,"From: $_POST[userEmail]\r\n"."Reply-To: $_POST[userEmail]\r\n") )
$html = 'Thank you for contacting '.$buisness_name.', '.$_POST['userName'].'. <br/>Your email was sent <br/>Script by <a href="htp://click here">Stargeek</a>';
$html = 'There was an error';
$message = '<textarea name="userMessage" rows="20" cols="70"></textarea>';
$name = '<input type="text" name="userName" size="30">';
$reply = '<input type="text" name="userEmail" size="30">';
$send = '<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Send">';
