1) Is your DB connected?
2) Can you Select:

$results ="SELECT `title`, LEFT('description',70) as `description` , `url` FROM `articles` WHERE $where";

3) If Yes, then you have data in the DB but if no, you need to learn how to Select I can't help you anymore than that.

commented: thank you for responding to my problem +0

yea it may be a probelm in the connection i have data in the db i will tray another way

Line 16 and 21 still have single quotes around keywords and description. Change them to backticks.

@pritaeas
i have donet but nothing happens have a look:


$where .= "`keywords` LIKE '%$keyword%'";


$results = "SELECT 'title' LEFT(`description`,70) as 'description' , 'url' FROM  'articles' WHERE $where";

anything else plz i have speend a lot of time doing this

Same in line 8: title, description, url and articles should be in backticks, not single quotes... and add a comma after title.

@pritaeas

$results = "SELECT `title`, LEFT(`description`,70) as `description` , `url`, FROM  `articles`, WHERE $where";


i have put  but nothing happen

I think everyone has explain the mistakes to you. But you still being very rude.

Removed the comma after url (before FROM) and after articles (before WHERE).

I strongly suggest you read up on how to write correct MySQL queries, because you are making some very basic errors.

the error wasnt in the comma it show me this:
Notice: Undefined variable: reult in C:\xampp\htdocs\search\func.inc.php on line 37

Warning: mysql_fetch_assoc() expects parameter 1 to be resource, null given in C:\xampp\htdocs\search\func.inc.php on line 37

You didn't post any errors in the first place. Everyone who has help you is base on the script you provided.
