One quick way to search content (that is indexed by google) would be to just have the search page post to google using an advanced query such as:

http://www.google.com/search?q=site:www.themeforest.net+templates

(replacing site:www.themeforest.net with yoursite.com and “templates” with the text entered in the search box)

This of course brings users off your site for the search but it’s better than nothing, hope that helps.

Thanks but I think the Google thing would look too amateur. Im trying to get this to work but so far no luck : http://javascriptkit.com/script/script2/jse/index.shtml

Ummm I see your point, Sorry I have no clue really about Javascript.

Have you tried on a site like Phpfreaks.com, there usually very quick in helping with things like this.

Thanks for your help but PHP is too techy for me; Im TRYING to get http://javascriptkit.com/script/script2/jse/index.shtml to work but I think it’s just either an old script that doesnt work anymore or Im just to thick to use it.

If anyone knows how to get that script to work using an image as the ‘Go’ button instead of that big fat button then I’d appreciate it.

aha!

I think your problem is not with Javascript, but with HTML .

You can use a image instead of a form button simply by:

Remember to change the IMAGE URL , WIDTH and HEIGHT .

Thanks Sean
