Google search

This addon consists from to two blocks: a side block with the google search form and a main block, where google results are displayed. When you install this block it will create a standard results page called google_search; this page can be edited or customised in the same way as any other page. In addition you can create your own page or put a results block on an existing page. When you add the side search block you will need a google search api key which can be obtained from Sign-up for an AJAX Search API Key - Google AJAX Search API - Google Code. The page ID parameter is only needed if you are sending the results to a page you have added the google results block on and can be left empty.


[block user_search_id="{your search API Key}" page_id="{The Page you have added the results block on}" ]side_google_search[/block]
