Search this Weblog
Category : Technology/searchphrase.txt
Now, I'm really glad I took the trouble to understand the PHP code running this weblog. Adding just about three lines of code, I'm now able to let people search the weblog archives for articles containing the phrase they have entered.
Google has been leading people to this weblog when they search for things like "mail server os x". But when they get to here, they see only the latest day's edition. I've never seen anybody having the time to go search the archives manually for the relevant articles.
So, in yet another effort to make this particular corner of the blogosphere a friendly place, I've added the Search Weblog button on the left. (Try searching for "alfred hitchcock"). It's just a simple function - only able to match the complete phrase you've entered, nothing more (for now).
If you're interested in the source code, you can download it from the Weblog Tutorial page on the right.
