Add AJAX search to your WP blog

I’m working on a project right now where we’re putting together what we feel will be a revolutionary new type of record label. Of course, this means creating a revolutionary web site as well. In speaking with our designers we’ve laid out a set of capabilities that we’ll need; one of which is search for the site.

This is, of course, not a significant implementation. However, it is yet another thing that one has to worry about (and pay for) when having a site built.

I did a little poking around today to try and determine how WP users might address this specific issue, and, lo and behold, I found a solution that I installed here on the 9GS blog in about 8 seconds.

As you can see on the sidebar, it incorporates some nice AJAX, and includes searches of the blog and Web. You can also configure it to search other things; such as a Flickr set.

It’s a good example, I believe, of the giant strides we are taking towards the day when building useful, efficient sites that can truly help your artistic career is a reality.

As a side note, WP has now set up an official Plugins page.

    Probably one of the hardest things anyone can do is try and learn something new. Congrats to anyone who tries.
