I got Google Search code & I'd like to replace vanilla search by google search box.
I added google search box in my forum by using "messages" link in dashboard,but it also gave me results page code.Where should I put the results page code?

  • You could replace the <div id="Search"> content in your theme's default.master.php with:


    <div class="Google-Search">Google Search</div>
    <div id="cse" style="width: 100%;">Loading</div>
    <script src="http://www.google.com/jsapi"; type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    google.load('search', '1', {language : 'en', style : google.loader.themes.SHINY});
    google.setOnLoadCallback(function() {
    var customSearchControl = new google.search.CustomSearchControl('xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx');
    customSearchControl.setResultSetSize(google.search.Search.FILTERED_CSE_RESULTSET);
    customSearchControl.draw('cse');
    }, true);
    </script>
    </div>


    and then add a 'Google-Search' styling to your custom.css file to pretty it up. Be sure to replace the hidden google search id with yours.

    And if you're using a Smarty Theme (ie .tpl), you need to put this in
    library/vendors/SmartyPlugins/function.searchbox.php , and just change the main div in the template

    I would like to add google custom search through the embedded theme's search box. So...In the above file, do I replace it's contents:

    function smarty_function_searchbox($Params, &$Smarty) {
       $Form = Gdn::Factory('Form');
       $Form->InputPrefix = '';
       $Result =
          $Form->Open(array('action' => Url('/search'), 'method' => 'get')).
          $Form->TextBox('Search', array('placeholder' => T('Search'))).
          $Form->Button('Go', array('Name' => '')).
          $Form->Close();
    
       return $Result;
    }
    

    with the code tjforsythe mentioned?

        <div class="Google-Search">Google Search</div>
        <div id="cse" style="width: 100%;">Loading</div>
        <script src="http://www.google.com/jsapi&quot; type="text/javascript"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript">
          google.load('search', '1', {language : 'en', style : google.loader.themes.SHINY});
          google.setOnLoadCallback(function() {
           var customSearchControl = new google.search.CustomSearchControl('xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx');
           customSearchControl.setResultSetSize(google.search.Search.FILTERED_CSE_RESULTSET);
           customSearchControl.draw('cse');
          }, true);
        </script>
        </div>
    

    Then, what do I do regarding "changing the main div in the template"?

    I could use the Vanoogle plugin, but I do not want a floating search box. I would like it to use the templates search box.

    Thanks for the help!
