Expand your site's search functionality by providing separate searches of specific parts of your site (forms or policies, for example).
Add the component to the page. There are 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.
