Allow User to Search in Your Wapsite

Hi, in this tutorial I will explain search feature in wapka. With the help of this feature you can allow visitors of your site to search for content they need..

Lets do it in wapkatutor's way :)

Step 1: Login to your free wapka account
Step 2: Goto Admin Mode
Step 3: Goto ES > Searching
Step 4: You will be redirected to a page where you will see the form to add the search box for your visitors..You will need to edit the following parts in the form.
[a] Text on button: This is the text you wanna display on submit button.. Like "Search" etc.
[b] Search on site/forum*: This area is to write the site ID's to search in. This is  little bit tricky part, let me explain it..
For sites: If you want to search on the whole site leave this field blank. In the other case insert site ID where you want to search. Searching will be automatically applied also on every page under selected site.
If you want to insert more sites, where you want to search, separate them by comma (2,8,95)
 If you want to search only in selected site without under sites insert in front of site ID symbol "_" - underline. (e.g.: _2) or (e.g.: _2,_8,_95)
For forum: If you want to search on all your forums leave this field blank. In the other case insert Forum ID, where you want to search. If you want to insert more forums, separate them by comma (1,2,3)
[c] Under Search on site/forum*: you willl see select box from which you can select where you wanna search i.e. in Forums, Sites or in Users.
Step 5: Now add the form and see if it worked for you..

That way you can add as many search form as you like in all your wapka site pages. Let us know what you did and what happened to you. Sharing the problems makes problem easier.
