Not sure if this is the right thread to be posting in but ...
I'm working on a website which I want to include a hosted WordPress blog (eg: http://www.mydomainname.com/blog). Will the search function that comes with WordPress search the rest of my site, or will it just be restricted to the posts and pages I create on the blog itself?
Ideally I want the search function to cover the entire website. I've tried countless website search software but can't get any of it to work, hence why I'm keen for it to be done by WordPress.
Otherwise it looks as though I'll have to create the entire website in WordPress, which I'm reluctant to do as I don't think it gives a newbie like me as much control over the layout and style as I can get with CSS (which I understand a lot better).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
