Search code??


Recommended Posts

This is my SEARCH code.


$like  = "SearchWord LIKE '%".implode("%' OR SearchWord LIKE '%", explode(' ', $Var))."%'";
$query = "SELECT * FROM db1 WHERE $like ORDER BY ToDate ASC";
$results = mysql_query($query);


Currently this code search every word in the MYSQL column. (e.g. If a user enter a 3 words and hit the search button, it still take the two words as individual words and outputs all records which has either of those 3 words.)


My need is to make the code find ALL the search words match in any sequence.



Wooden toy for 3 year old

Metal sward

Dora cotton pillow

Wooden sward


if the user search using "wooden toy" the code should show only "Wooden toy for 3 year old"

if the user search using "wooden" the code should show "Wooden sward" and  "Wooden toy for 3 year old"
