Search Intranet Site

Recommended Posts

Hello:

I would like to have a searchbox on each page (I know how to create this in JS) where I would enter something and then be able to search the current as well as all of my INTERNAL web pages and be able to click next and have the program navigate to each match.

1.  Somehow, I believe I need a defined list of page names

2.  Next, I believe I would search the title field.

The closest thing I have been able to find is .getElementsByTagName.  Not sure if this is the best approach.

 

Is there a good starting point example of something like this?  I would like to keep it as simple as possible.  I have been reading lots of stuff on line, and just do not feel I am hitting a solution.

Thanks!

Looks interesting, thanks for the info.

I have built a site using .NET Objects Fusion.  What I like about it is that I can quickly add things and republish.  It also will be good for all the people here who don't and won't learn how it works.  Perhaps I can reference these js files and add some code to the html, which is supported?  Something to play with, unless you know for sure it wont work...

That plugin just uses a Javascript array of objects with various properties like title, URL, etc.  It just looks for keywords in the text in that object and shows the URLs.  If that's what you're looking for then maybe it's a good fit for you.

If you like my suggestion, pass your cursor over the heart and select the trophy.

This works well when I'm dealing with the web example.  When I try to map it locally, it does not act the same way.

I've tried adding "file:" in front of the local url's, does not seem to make a difference.

I'm thinking there is a slight syntax issue I'm not getting.  Code below:

The browser might block local files from being loaded.  It's best to test that by uploading everything to a server.

The problem is, we have no intention  of using a server, as this is an intranet application.  Perhaps this solution it not good.  How can I search this.  I want to simply type in come text and page to it as for each occurrence, or list created links.

Thanks for your reply.

Why doesn't your intranet have a server?  You're going to need a place to store all of the files, right?  So, where are the files?  Do you keep a separate copy on every computer?

Well, if you don't have a web server then your options are limited.  Different browsers might place different restrictions on you.

How do you access that HTML file, do you just double-click on it to open it?  What's the URL show?  You might want to open your developer tools and refresh with the Network tab open to see what it's doing, if there are any error messages they'll be on the console tab.

Yes, just index.html.  I can qualify that it will only work under a certain browser, like chrome, or whatever you would suggest.  Just looking for something really simple.  

Somehow, there must be a way to specify the ten or so pages I will have and just search the html for matching text, and just jump through to each item in order, or create a list of links.  Either way is acceptable.

Thanks!

I'm sure there is, you just need to build an object that describes everything and your browser needs to be able to load everything.  First step is to use your developer tools to figure out what's going on.

What would be a good practice to hose this, so I can utilize the tipue functionality?  Internal best practive for web publishing.  A reference to a book would be great!

 

Thanks!

You can download a package like XAMPP that has everything you might need.  You really only need Apache or another web server though if you're only serving static files.  Some versions of Windows have the IIS server included but you probably need to install it through the control panel first.

Hello:

I installed this and played around with it a little. No localhost.  I did change the port from 80 to 81 and updated the configuration file, and it says Apache is running.  I also opened ports 80, 81 and 443 on the firewall.

I also looked at IIS, again, no localhost.  https://www.betterhostreview.com/turn-on-iis-windows-10.html

I just for now, would like it running on my local PC to see if I can get the search functionality to work.

IIS may be simpler, if I can get it working.  What step did I miss?

Thanks!

I'm not sure, I'm not watching you.  What does "no localhost" mean, that means you can't connect if you open http://localhost/?  The browser says it can't find the server?

Install a web server on your local PC.  If you're using Apache and having problems, check the log files.

As I mentioned, I am listening on port 81 instead of 80.  That is simply a guess.  Is port 81 even valid?

It will listen on whatever port you tell it to, but you'll need to change the URLs in the browser also.  Skype is the most common application that listens on port 80 and blocks other applications from using it.

Sorry to keep asking questions, but I have applied this in the httpd.conf file:
#
# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
# directive.
#
# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to 
# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses.
#
#Listen 12.34.56.78:80
Listen 81

 

Are there other places where I also have to specify Port 81?

Thanks for the help!

Step 1 - NetStat

Address        Port        PID       Name

0.0.0.0           81           16208  httpd.exe

0.0.0.0           443         16208  httpd.exe

 

Step 2 - Edit the file "httpd.conf"

In httpd.conf I have:

Listen 81

ServerName localhost:81

 

Step 3 - Edit the file "http-ssl.conf"

In http-ssl.conf I have:

 

Step 4 - Configure XAMPP Apache server settings

Main Port        SSL Port

81                     443

 

Step 4.1 - Web browser configuration: Tools / Options / Settings / Connection Settings...  

I applied this by setting LAN settings to my IP address, 192.168.50.135 and setting the port to 81

 

Step 4.2 - Added XAMPP.INI to the C:\xampp directory

[PORTS]

apache = 81

 

Let me know if you see anything obvious.  If there is a good book on how to do this, I'd lobe to know about it.  Perhaps our Firewall is the problem.  I just need to get this working so I can test Tipue for search functionality.  If it works, then we can decide where to host this intranet site.

 

Thank You!

It looks like it's running on port 81, can you not access it on that port?
