    Hi
    I'm building a website via dreamweaver 8 (im building my experience with it, i'm stilll a novice) and was wondering how I would go about adding a searchbar to my website, I've seen these around, but I am unsure how to go about adding it in my own site (see pic)

    If anyone has any thoughts, I'd love to hear them. I don't see an option in dreamweaver to do this, do I have to do it through another software program?
    Thanks.

    Thanks nightelf. I was considering google, but I heard the adsense needs to come with the search bar.

    Adding a search bar is easy, but adding one that functions is difficult. It's not as easy as adding a text area and magically expecting it to search your site. Their needs to be a script that indexes your content and what not.

    I've used DGS in the past. Works great for static sites and takes some tweaking for dymanic sites. Hope this helps.
