  • search/searchfieldSnippet.html: Is an example of HTML code to include in a web page. It consists of a search field trigger and a modal pop-up with the actual search field where the user can enter words to search for.
  • search/fulltextHelp.php: A help file explaining how to search with cattaSearch.
  • search/sogeHjaelp.php: A Danish version of fulltextHelp.php.

cattaSearch is based on fulltext search in MySQL. This means that a certain syntax can be used to refine the search of the website. This is explained in the search help file search/fulltextHelp.php, optionally to be called from the search field (see searchfieldSnippet.html).
