A search engine is a web-based tool which allows the internet users to find information on the internet. Most commonly used search engines are Google, Yahoo!, MSN, Bing, Ask etc. Search engines are special types of programs used to search documents having specified keywords and returns a list of documents where the keywords are located. Asearch engine is usually a general collection of programs. However, the term ‘search engine’ is often used to generally describe the common systems like Google, Bing and Yahoo! Search engines generally use automated software applications e.g robots or spiders which moves across the Web and follows the links from page to page, site to site. The information collected by these crawlers is used to create a searchable index of the Web.

I have moderate level PHP programming skills. I am also interested in merging those skills inside of the WordPress app. With their advanced responsive design themes and many other functions it seems like a good idea. I have tried loading some PHP plug-ins in WP – but I don't seem to get them to do more than basics.

Can anybody help me on how I can get started working with PHP/MySQL inside of the WordPress app?
