SillySearch lets you allow a visitor to search through pages in a single directory on your website for pages containing words that the user enters into a form. They can choose to search only for files containing all the words they enter, or to search for files containing any one of the words. Results are returned ranked by how many of the terms were found in the page. If the page has html <TITLE> tags, the results will show a link with that title linking to the page. If the page does not have <TITLE> tags, it will just show the name of the page. You can try the demo here. It searches through files on the Linguistic Funland's TESL site, the Linguistic Funland TESL Job Postings, and my "personal" pages.
New in v2.0: You can now have the program search multiple directories.
You must be able to execute cgi programs on your web server. If you're not sure whether you have permission to do this, or are not sure how to configure the files, please ask your system administrator. (Usually "firstname.lastname@example.org." For example, if your email address is 'email@example.com' then you can often reach your system administrator at 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. AOL, CompuServe, and Prodigy users should look for "technical support" or "member services.")
You should have received the following files with your distribution. Please be sure to read the README.sillysearch file!!! You may download the package in a gzipped tar file, or just download each of the files individually by clicking on them here.
