Using Google Search

If you choose to use Google as your search engine, the setup is pretty straightforward. You will need to use the University-wide results template, however, since there is no option to specify another template.

For example, a Google search box to search the webinfo site would look like:


The HTML source needed to generate this form is:

<!-- Search Google -->
<form method="get" action="">
<table cellspacing="0" border="0">
<tr valign="middle">
<td><a href=""><img src=
    "" border="0" alt="Google"
    <input type="text" name="q" size="31" maxlength="255" value= "" />
    <input type="hidden" name="hq" value="" />
    <input type="submit" name="sa" value="Search Webinfo" /> 
<!-- Search Google -->

To use Google for your site, you'll need to change the hidden field named hq to contain the URL for your site, and the text of the submit button. Be sure to not change the action="" attribute for the form itself.
