Interactive search for specific parts of your site.
This component has 3 tabs: Search, Results and Advanced.
Unlike a site-wide search, this component does not have to be placed in your site's header and provides its own search box. Search results are by default displayed on that same page, or the component can be configured to display the results link on another 'search results' page. Also this component can be configured to search just part of your site.
This search works in author but is only searching PUBLISHED content. It also will not find secure or hidden content (a page that is completely hidden from the navigation).
Some components do not 'play nicely' with the search. For example, a return that finds a phrase in a Collapsible Content Container will not load with that container open.
To get complete results for your site, keep Site Filter as simple as possible. Omit http:// at the beginning. Remove any slash at the end. And for 'www.buffalo.edu/site', try the results with and without the 'www.' prefix and use whichever works best.
This feature works comparably in both the Classic and Flex UI versions of the UBCMS. In the future, screenshots and language will be updated to reflect Flex UI.
To configure a site-wide search, please read this advanced topic: Set up a Site-Wide Search.
When someone tries to load a non-existent page, they land on a '404 page'. Custom 404 pages are possible.
