View Full Version : can someone help me optimalise this script

10-06-2003, 11:08 AM
Hello people,

I have found this search script on the internet and I really love it. It was full of buggs but I removed them. With this script I can decide my own keywords, description and url's.

There is only one problem. I dont know how to optimalize the script. i'll explain:

Now I have to do it like this:

Keyword [1] = "test"
Descrip [1] = "beschrijving "
Address [1] = http://URLnaarwebsite.nl

My problem is that I have to enter 400 keywords so doing it like this wont be easy.

I searched around and people told me to do it like this:

search[1]= new Array ('key','link1','discription');
search[2]= new Array ('key2','link2','discription');
search[3]= new Array ('test','link3','discription');
search[4]= new Array ('test','link4','discription');

I just have no clue how to put this in the script and what I have to change for it. I hop you can read all of this couse I am not englisch but Dutch.

I hope you can help me

greetings from the netherlands

you could enter the 400 words in a text file, then read it into the array one line at a time?
