Do you have a description of the data “universe” your client wants to search and present? Is that data already collected into something structured, like a spreadsheet or a desktop database? How many records, how well-proofed? Is the data going to change over time? Who will change it? These are all questions that can help you define the problem space, and then the solution.

One of my clients is asking for a site similar to this one:
WebYep would be a good way to add content to the site, but it doesn’t have any sort of search facility. And unlike building the site entirely in Freeway, with WebYep you couldn’t even use Simple Site Search because the content wouldn’t be in Freeway to be indexed.
As far as the pick from a list option – that’s more complex than the open text field search, not less. I don’t see how you’re going to do this without at minimum an admin page(s) to update a database of content, a script to generate the picking lists, and another script to translate requests from those picking lists into a list of results. It’s not a very complex programming job, but it is a programming job, and not something you can do in Freeway with a few Actions.

I’m afraid the customer not being very technical, will be supplying me with bits of paper and verbal instructions.
They have used WebYep on another site, so could this be a way of them adding boats?
They may be happy with a list type menu to select from rather than a fully featured search option.
i’ve the same problem and would like to integrate php search engine in my web yep-site (i bought it already).
as i read above that this is a theme of the webyep manual i was really pleased. unfortunately i can’t find this chapter in the PDF (vers. 3.3). did i overlook something? if not, do you have an example for me to see how the code is integrated in the freeway-file … would be very kind and appreciated
