Search

Short Description

Search one Wikidot site

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"]]
