    a very Tall order

    Hello all on my web site (http://easyfilesearch.com) I have a search feature that searches other sites for the user’s input. I would like to have a top searches section where all of today’s or this hr’s top searches are listed and if possible have the ability to censor out inappropriate words. Believe me I know that this is a tall order because when I looked around for an answer; all kinds of scary words started to show up like php , Mysql , databases, access etc… and I am what you might call a complete noob. I know it’s probably too much to ask one of you guys to do all that work so I won’t, instead can you point me in the right direction because from the looks of it there isn’t one way to do this and some ways are easier and or better than others. But hey if you feel like taking on this monumental task then please don’t let me stop you. Anyway tell me what you guys think.

    What you are looking for amounts to a major professional-level project, involving "scary" things like php, databases etc. If you are a "complete noob" I don't think you are going to get very far. You have to crawl before you can walk, and walk before you can run.

    I am sure that you can find someone willing to undertake this for you - at professional rates of course.

    Your probably right, I figured that my usual trial and error routine isn’t gonna cut it here. How much are you wreckin something like that would set me back? Also can you recommend a site for me to learn how to crawl?

    P.s thanx for the reply , i appreciate your help brother.
