CodeIgniter Search Query Example

$searchTerm = $this->input->post('search_term');
$this->db->like('title', $searchTerm);
$query = $this->db->get('articles');
$result = $query->result();
  1. Retrieve the search term from the POST data.
  2. Use CodeIgniter's database library to construct a SQL query that performs a "LIKE" comparison on the 'title' column with the search term.
  3. Execute the SQL query to retrieve the matching records from the 'articles' table.
  4. Store the results of the query in the $result variable for further processing or display.
