Live Search is a search bar that you can add to any Stack’s page. It will allow visitors to search through your entire website for specific terms. There is absolutely no setup up required! No PHP support or database needed! No outsourcing the results from Google, just real time information gathered from your website. This live search bar will not even need to reload the page as the results will be displayed in real time.

The Live Search RapidWeaver Stack will search the content from all of the pages in your navigation dynamically. You can then optionally add customized styling to the search bar and search results. Although you can simply drag and drop Live Search and it works without any required setup, it doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of options for customization.

####Customization

  • Control how many results display per page.
  • Declare how many words to display in the search result page description.
  • Change the wording for every search prompt for localization in any language.
  • Have search result links open in a new window or tab.
  • Optionally add a dropdown that will suggest terms to search for.
  • Enable auto-complete in the search bar for repetitive searches.
  • Declare pages that do not show up in the navigation for the search bar to search through.
  • Mark where the page will display the description text from when it is shown in the search results.
  • Choose between two display styles for the search results that either load as a pop up or load directly into a container that you declare (This is so you can place the search bar in a sidebar or the like and have the results display in the main content).
  • Customize the search results: page title & description font, page title & description text size, line-height, background color, description & title color, link color, and the searched term highlight color.
  • Customize the search bar: border radius, font, input text size, background color, border color, input text color, and placeholder text color.

Live Search Reviews

Great search stack and helpful developer

Eric Crouch

An excellent configurable search stack; serves up results very quickly. I transferred my site that has a lot of text and hundreds of links from Sandvox to RW8 and Live Search allows me to avoid laboriously constructing the indexes I needed in Sandvox. A very helpful developer too. I contacted him about three problems on a Saturday and got an email back on on the Monday evening with solutions to all three - including an updated version of the stack. Brilliant!

Great solution. Simply works!

Most clients don't like to advertise Google or Duck Duck Go in their search results. Also, I've tried another stack that only shows results incorporated in the site description. As for now, Live Search is the only RW solution that worked for me.

Good looking, but with a limitation

A very easy to use, good looking search solution for RapidWeaver. However, it is unusable to me because it only searches the pages listed in the navigation menu. Any page that is not listed in the menu will need to be added manually. I have a research site with hundreds of pages that are not listed in the navigation menu. Each page needs to be added manually to the list, and that is too much input to be feasible. Their customer support was swift and helpful, even if in the end I have to find another search stack to use. If your searches are of pages in your navigation menu, then this is an excellent solution.
