It sounds like you haven't indexed your site yet.  I'm afraid I don't have
my instructions in front of me, but you'll need to run the indexer as per
the readme file.

Subject: [Perlfect-search] Search from HTML page doesn't work

I am new to Perfect-Search so please bear with my ignorance.  I have
installed and tested Perlfect-Search by directly accessing the
/cgi-bin/perlfect/search/ in my browser as suggested in the README
doc and this works fine.  I am now trying to make an html page that has the
search box in it but can't seem to get this to work.  Everytime I put in a
search term it returns saying there are no results, no errors, just no
returned results.  If I put the exact same term in by directly accessing
the file in my browser it works fine.  I am using the template
search.html file supplied in the installation template directory as the
base for my test html file.  Does anyone have any ideas on what could cause
this and how to fix it?  I have attached my shortened version of the
search.html that I am using.
