Search now with AutoComplete

Wednesday, September 20th, 2006 at 10:15 am

I just enhanced the site search here with an autocomplete option using the [link:,YUI AutoComplete Widget]. Just type in anything and you’ll get a list of post titles to choose from. Selecting the title automatically gets you to the entry.

I had this dynamic first, using a PHP script to poll the database, but it seems the load is too much. Anyone interested in a step – by – step how to do it yourself?
