Search Module

Description

The Search module lets your users search the current site. You can place the Search module itself on any page, but your site must contain a page called "search:site" that (also) contains the Search module.

Attributes

The Search module allows these attributes:

  • mini="true" - shows a simpler search box, hiding the radio button search options.

Example

On your site's start page:

++ Search this site
[[module Search]]
= ([http://www.wikidot.com/doc:searching Search tips])

On your site's search:site page:

[[module Search]]

Advanced Settings for search:site Page

This option only works on your site's search:site page in conjunction with the default search box (normally located near the top navigation bar).
The default source of this page is:

[[module Search]]

[!-- please do not remove or change this page if you want to keep the search function working --]

You can edit the parameters of the Search module using the following options.
  • a="p" sets the default search mode to pages only (default).
  • a="f" sets the default search to forum only.
  • a="pf" sets the default search to pages and forum.

Used in tandem with mini="true" you can hide the radio button options displaying a simpler interface and controlling the type of search done on your site.

Advanced Example

To limit searching to forums only and hide the search radio button options, edit your search:site page so it looks like this:

[[module Search a="f" mini="true"]]
