    Need help with my site - search function within my site not working?!?

    I purchased this template, customized it and found out it has a search
    function for within the site - the challenge is that SEARCH function
    is a dummy text box and doesn't work (apparently I have to pay much
    more to get it to work). I want to get it to work, but I am unsure
    how to do it on my own, hopefully nothing too complicated. The banner
    is in FLASH, so I am not sure if this is going to pose another
    problem.

    Any suggestions welcome,

    Thank you for both the sarcasm and the wit. I did find the post
    humorous in a more ways then one.
    My site has flash, so your solution, although practical, won't work
    with it.
