The quotation marks surround a search phrase

The quotation marks surround a search phrase

Is there a way to build in quotation marks into a database search so that the user does not need to type quotation marks to surround a search phrase?

you can force the quotes through php code, for example if the search form uses the GET method, and the search field is named "keyword":

php:
<?php

if(isset($_GET['keyword']) && $_GET['keyword'] != "") {
    
$_GET['keyword'] = "\"".$_GET['keyword']."\"";
}
?>

Hi again Jason, if I use post, would this be correct?:
<?php
if(isset($_POST['Products']) && $_POST['Products'] != "") {
$_POST['Products'] = "\"".$_POST['Products']."\"";
}
?>
If it is correct, where exactly do I place this code? At the top of the results page?

Many thanks

Yes, that would be correct for the POST method. Place the code at line 1 of the results page.
