Somewhere in your blog template, include this code to create the search box. This code is customized for Walter's blog; you just need to replace the two mentions of bikefridaywalter with the URL of your own blog.
You can get fancy with the interface if you want and search by author, by tag to create a primitive categorization scheme, and so forth.
Update: This code does not work with the Safari browser. Does the Blogger Navbar search box work when you surf with Safari?
IMPORTANT: Please post comments for this article at the new CYCLELICIOUS 2.0 version of this page.
Is there any way to make this search through "archived" journal entries also? i.e. my livejournal only displays the 20 most recent entries on the page listed, therefore the search function only searches those 20 entries for the desired string.
Sarah: Livejournal doesn't automatically send pings when you post articles -- hence, Google Blogsearch doesn't know about your Livejournal blog. I just sent a ping for your blog and I'll try a search in the morning (if I remember) to see what happens.
Walter: The sample code on the page is specifically for your blog so it should just work by cutting and pasting directly. PHP code requires PHP support -- is there PHP support on Blogdrive?
update: the java code worked in mozilla. i guess safari doesn't like it. oh well. all my fellow mac geeks will be without search capabilities. (and yes, i know we can use camino or explorer or whatever.. but it's so nice to not HAVE to)
i'm pleased to find that i don't have the problem that sarah does but i also find that it can't find EVERYTHING. for example, i wrote about a bunch of books including tim krabbe's "the rider" and katie alvord's "divorce your car!" a long long time ago. searches for krabbe and divorce pulled up nothing. but it also doesn't just include the stuff on the main page, either, as a search for "book" shows.
btw, php doesn't work on blogdrive as you suspected.
