    I have saved the website http://www.j-archive.com/listseasons.php onto my computer so I can view it offline (I do not have internet access except for when I am at the library). However, the webpage search engine (right next to the help bar on the top of the screen) does not work offline. Is there a way to save the webpage and have the in website search engine still work?

    Thank you very much.

    No, every link on the web page leads to another web page on the server that is hosting the website. So unless you are connected to the server you cannot view the website pages.

    no I dont think your quite right (unless I misunderstood). The entire website is on my computer. I can click around and navigate. The sole exception is the search function. My question is why only the search does not work.

    No, I am sorry, I didn't catch that you had the whole website saved. I am not sure why the search function will not work though.

    My best guess is that you do not have any software on your computer to run the search function, such as PHP and MySQL. Maybe someone will come along that is an actual web developer and give you a better answer.
