<strong>The Search Engine for your Website.</strong><br />

You can use Live Search for smaller and medium websites. A database is not needed. The website will be crawled from the defined baseurl.
The links will be collected and the content cached – so future searches are faster. Already succeeded searches are stored in files too to increase search speed.
The textparts with the found searchstrings are cropped in the search results so only the part with the searchstring is displayed (like displaying the results on Google)

Various options help you to handle Live Search. A Search Word Cloud is available too.

short head of the Changelog

<strong>Current Version Live Search 4.1 January 30<sup>th</sup> 2019</strong>

<i>Update information are included</i>

<em>Updates V4.1 January 30<sup>th</sup> 2019</em>

<li>improved and fixed: there were some issues with the included pagination when having more pages than 5 with the next page button</li>
<li>added: Bootstrap 4.x pagination</li>

<em>Updates V4.01 April 14<sup>th</sup> 2017</em>

<li>improved/fixed: there were no results when indexing/caching sites/projects with just one page (whereby I wouldn&#8217;t suggest a search engine on a project where there&#8217;s only one document to search for)<br />

now these special websites will be indexed correctly too  :)

<em>Updates V4.0 October 4<sup>th</sup> 2016</em>

<li>improved/fixed: highlighting in search results &#8211; highlight words in one step instead of highlighting for each word to avert possible highlighting of already highlighted parts (and destroying code)</li>
    <li>improved: replaced some strtolower and stripos PHP functions with their multi byte versions mb_strtolower and mb_stripos for better handling special characters</li>

<em>Updates V3.9 August 6<sup>th</sup> 2016</em>

<li>upgraded: __construct() method instead of constructor named as the class (pre PHP 5.3) &#8211; will be depricated in future versions of PHP</li>
    <li>fixed: a combination of $baseurl with directoy path and links in websites pointing to root directory (leading /) caused invalid urls to cache</li>
    <li>added: XML Sitemap (even on external hosts)</li>
    <li>added: host as information (reduced by leading www.) to each text(html,php,asp,text,...) indexed url to make it easier to distinguish baseurl and external urls</li>
    <li>fixed: lost information if it&#8217;s a PDF or not with second search using the cached search results (i.e. for displaying the icon next to to the result)</li>
    <li>added: possibility to prevent from following parent directories inside baseurl when using a directory path, makes only sense ifyou really like to stay inside parent directory</li>
    <li>improved: when linking to resources sending 302 or 301 as HeaderCode LiveSearch will follow these resources (i.e. redirects from http to https, old to new urls, ...) when using CURL as crawling method</li>
    <li>improved: new documentation pages</li>
    <li>small fix: when indexing external websites and there were absolute (beginning with /) URLs, LS was trying to follow them on Host of $baseurl &#8211; while it shouldn&#8217;t follow any link on external websites</li>

<em>Updates V3.8 April 26<sup>th</sup> 2016</em>

<li>fixed (minor): removed php-short-opentag from example search page <del>&gt; $LiveSearch</del>&gt;printSrchCloud()</li>
    <li>fixed (major): removed &#8230;..</li>
