Search Box - site search and Google search

It is possible to add a Google search box that will search just your own site, or will search all of Google. Below are two suggestions for site search features.

You can use a free site search service called siteLevel:

This will search the pages of your site.

  1. Go to siteLevel.com.
  2. Fill in your email address and domain name and click Sign Up.
  3. Highlight the Javascript Search Box option and copy it.
  4. In the Sitebuilder, go to Widgets > Popular.
  5. Drag and drop the HTML Code Widget onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere).
  6. Paste the code into the HTML Editor and click "Save".
  7. Save and preview your page to view the search box.


You can also add a search box to search Google:

This widget will search Google.

  1. Go to Widgets > Popular.
  2. Drag and drop your HTML Code Widget onto the page you wish to have the search box displayed.
  3. Add the following code:
    <form method="get" action="http://www.google.com/search">
    <div style="border:2px solid black;padding:2px;width:20em;">
    <table border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0">
    <input type="text" name="q" size="25" style="color:#808080;" maxlength="255" value="Google site search" onfocus="if(this.value==this.defaultValue)this.value=''; this.style.color='black';" onblur="if(this.value=='')this.value=this.defaultValue; "/> <input type="submit" value="Go!" />
    <input type="hidden" name="sitesearch" value="google.com" />
  4. Click Save and you should see the search box displaying on your page.
