Controller View: Adding Search

Do I need to create a variable to put the GET variable into before doing this? I keep getting the message that 's' is undefined. `<input type="text" name="s" value="<?php echo htmlspecialchars($_GET["s"]);?>">

Also, I can't seem to make my code look right when asking questions. How do I get the black background and colored text?

many thanks,

The easiest way to post code is to use 3 back ticks ( ``` the same as tilde key on US computer without shift for tilde) on a new line, then skip a line enter your code then skip a line then 3 more back ticks

About your issue if I could see the code Im sure I can solve the issue
