Creating a 'Google" search for your site. by GUJUm0deL
Posted: 22 Feb 04

A lot of people have asked how to have a search engine on their site that searches the entire website, kind of like Google, Yahoo, MSN does.  Well, here you go.

<title>Google Search</title>
<meta name="author" content="GUJUm0deL">

function googleSearch() {
  if (document.doingasearch.searchbox.value!="") {    
      window.open("http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=" + document.doingasearch.searchbox.value) ;        
  else {
    alert("Please enter something to search.")

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
<table width="700" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
    <td><div align="center">Type any search criteria in the textfield and this
        will search it on google. <br>
        <em>Search results opens in a new window.</em></div></td>
    <FORM name="doingasearch" id="doingasearch">
  <INPUT name=searchbox type=text size=20>
  <INPUT type="button" value="Search" onclick="return googleSearch();">
  <td>For more scripts visit <a>http://www.imajinarts.com/downloads.cfm</a>
