Search Page Template

The Search page template allows you to create a custom search submission and landing page for your site. You must also set the Site Configuration to point at this page for search results.

Note: When using the Search component for a custom search you must create a search results page with a Search page template. This page should be at the same level in the folders as your home page and will need to be published and linked to from the site level Site Configuration properties (see image left). Site Configuration can be found if you View Properties at the site level, the level you are brought to after login, My Sites. If you cannot edit these properties, you will need to contact someone with Web Admin permissions for your site, in your department.
