Add Search Box to Article

Postby bbeshlian » Mon Jul 13, 2009 6:06 pm

I am a Joomla newbie. If this is not posted in the correct spot let me know. I want to add a search box to an Article. What has to happen is if you type in a keyword like "Assistant", then the titles (which are links to .PDF documents) appear on a new page in a new window and the links are functional. Is this possible? Thanks! Bill

Joomla! comes with a standard search module. Go to Module Manager and enable it. Since it is a module you have to publish it to a module position. If you are not finding the search module then create a new module from the Module Manager and select the Search as the module type.

I went to the Module Manager and saw that the Search function is enabled. I cannot get the Search to display or even work. Is there a tutorial on the Module Manager, specifically the search function? Thanks!

Look at http://www.joomla.org/about-joomla/getting-started.html. You can play around with the demo site.
