With a few mouse clicks, dtSearch Web Form Builder lets you designate multiple indexes to search on your site, and automatically generates a search page. The Form Builder lets you customise the contents of search results, the document display, and the search form itself. (You can also use an HTML editor such as Dreamweaver to edit the search form.)
The form builder will automatically install the search form on your Internet or Intranet Web site, so visitors can instantly carry out a search.
After a search, dtSearch Web will display retrieved files with hit highlighting, and all links and images intact. The result looks just like the original HTML or PDF page, but with highlighted hits. HTML links remain fully functional in the document. "next hit", "previous document", "next document" buttons let you quickly navigate through your hits and documents.
For XML, you can perform indexed searches using the full range of dtSearch features across an entire XML database, or limited to a highly specific combination of fields or sub-fields.
For other file types, dtSearch uses built-in file converters to convert non-Web-ready formats such as wordprocessor, database, spreadsheet, ZIP, etc., to HTML for display with highlighted hits.
Technical support and product updates are free for one year with all purchases of dtSearch Web.
Microsoft Windows only. Requires Microsoft IIS. You will need a dedicated Windows server to install dtsearch Web.
If you need to search a document collection from the web, and don't have a dedicated server or have a Linux server, you might want to consider using a secure cloud hosting service for your document collection that offers the dtSearch Engine as Search-as-a-Service API or a WordPress Plug-in from our sister site Search Cloud One.com
