I'm trying to buid up a search engine to my web site, and when I hid the search button for example for "computer" it only shows me results for pages which includes only the word computer.

but it would be ok if I would get a results as well for "computers" which has just a little "s" added to this string

this is my query

SELECT p.page_url AS url,
COUNT(*) AS occurrences
FROM r_page p, r_word w, r_occurrence o
WHERE p.page_id = o.page_id AND
w.word_id = o.word_id AND
w.word_word = \"$keyword\" ->> and here is the keyword
GROUP BY p.page_id
ORDER BY occurrences DESC

how can I do IT? i;ve tried with

w.word_word LIKE \"$keyword\" and won;t work

thanks guys!

You may want to check out this excellent tutorial on [a href=\"http://www.phpfreaks.com/tutorials/129/0.php\" target=\"_blank\"]MySQL Full-Text Searching with PHP[/a]. Your query will be set up differently, but you are likely to get back better results.
Guru? No, but I do RTFM

if you want to do it with LIKE, put % around the keyword
LIKE '%$keyword%'

Please use EDIT * 100...
Please use
or [php] * 1000...
