Hour 13. Providing Public Search > Understanding the Basics

Understanding the Basics

Before we jump into implementing a search feature on your site, it's important to get a broad view of Movable Type's approach to searching. We'll get into detail on these points later in the hour, so don't worry if you don't understand right away how to do the things I'm talking about.

The searching for all the weblogs you publish with your install of Movable Type is handled by one script, mt-search.cgi. This script will be the action of every search form you create—unless, of course, you write your own search script.
