I saw Ceddy J's post about iFraming Advanced Search Onto The Homepage, Is There A Way? and thought I'd post one possible solution here.
Create a Text Box on your homepage (middle column best).
In HTML mode of that new Text Box, paste this:
Now in your Custom Code, paste this:
You now have your advanced search form on your homepage. I tested it and it seemed to work OK.
This is perfect. Thanks SP.
very easy as well to add a Google based search:
<form target="_new" action="http://www.google.com/search" accept-charset="UNKNOWN" method="enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded"">
<table border="0" cellpadding="0">
<td><input maxlength="255" name="q" size="30" type="text" /><br />
<input style="width: 210px; height: 24px;" size="16" value="Your Site Search" type="submit" /></td>
<td style="font-size: 75%;" align="center"><input checked="checked" name="sitesearch" value="your site" type="checkbox" /> only search Your Site.com</td>
I have a two-column layout, could that be the reason why it's not working?
I figured it out! It worked on Firefox but doesn't work on Chrome for me!
hmm, i just tried it on Chrome but it seems to be OK. Is it live on your site?
Thats weird it works now and i did nothing different smh!
cool. more importantly, does it actually solve the problem?
