Showing results for tags 'search across database'.
Our database is designed to retrieve journal/magazine/etc. articles related to the user search term. We have used the guides for 'How to do a keyword search across multiple fields' and 'Separate Search Page and Results page' to create our search and results forms. Our search form currently allows users to search across the database using one entry/search field 'Search Phrase'. We want to add additional boxes to our search form to refine the search - search for specific author, title, etc. We can add these additional search fields but when we do, the results page returns ALL database records rather than the 2, 3, etc. that it should. We are thinking this is something with either logic or the way the parameters are passed over. Ideally we want the search form to 'Search across database' and/or 'Search for specific author/title/etc.'. Right now we seem to be able to get one or the other, but not both. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
