HI, I'm building a website it uses php and templates, so web pages are assembled before they are previewed (on the fly). I will like it to have search capabilities. What will be some ways to index the content and create the directories?
If your 'almost static' web site has URLs that stay the same from visit to visit for the same content, then a normal spidering search engine should work fine. I've also used Birdman's solution before, but I don't think the results are as good as I get with ht://Dig, so I'd tend to use that sort of engine anywhere it would work. It ought to be fine on an 'almost static' page, and it's very customizable.
thanks, for your replyes! the problem I'm having is that most of the content won't go into a DB.... and can't use a regular filesystem search beacuse the linking system is not standard... I'll keep looking, some of the links you guys sent me may solve my problem! thanks!
