Optimizing built-in Search engine (3 posts)

    Hi there,
    I'm new around here, and I hope you guys can answer a question. To begin with, I've been blogging for some time, and only recently got introduced to WordPress by my husband. I am so impressed! I love it.

    As a result, when I was put in charge of communicating status on a project at work, I thought of creating a team blog, but the problem that I have is that much of our work has already been saved in subdirectories that live outside the WordPress databases in MySQL.

    Is there any way to make the search engine built into the the blog software search those "alien" subdirectories, if they were 'ported to MySQL?

    It may be a dumb question, but thanks in advance for your advice.

    Best regards,
    aka "Muse Thalia"

    Why not try google's site search functionality? It will be up and functional soon enough.

    I can't. Corporate IT has deemed Google's search tools to be unsecure, and users onsite cannot even download Google's searchbar. (sigh) Otherwise, that's a great suggestion.
