Ah, I see! Yola does not have a feature right in the site builder but you could probably do a google search on it and find a tool to add this to your website.

Hello sergiu

It is possible to add a Google search box that will search just your own site, or will search all of Google. Included below is an example for another site search feature that seems to work very well.

You can add a Google site search box by using the Widgetbox Gallery:

This widget will search your site's pages.

1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery Widget onto your page.
2. A dialog box will open, in the search box type "Site Search".
3. Then click on "Search Your Site With Google". This will search just your site, but there will be a Google icon on the widget and possible ads.
4. Add your domain to "Site to Search"
5. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page.
6. Save and preview your page to view the widget.

You can also use a free site search service called siteLevel:

This will search the pages of your site.

1. Go to siteLevel.com.
2. Fill in your email address and domain name and click Sign Up.
3. Highlight the Javascript Search Box option and copy it.
4. In the Sitebuilder drag and drop an HTML Widget onto your page. The HTML Widget is located in the Sidebar on the right and is a blue circle.
5. Paste the code into the dialog box and click "OK".
6. Save and preview your page to view the search box.

You can also add a search box to search Google:

This widget will search Google.

1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery Widget onto your page.
2. A dialog box will open, click on "Google Search"
3. When the dialog box opens click on the green "Get Widget" button
4. Save and preview your page to view the widget.

I hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any further questions, please let me know.

What I mean is that you put "gays" instead of "guys" and somebody might mark it as inappropriate.

Hi sergiu
Autotrader is a very advanced site that uses a lot of PHP and MySQL databases, it would be near impossible to replicate this on Yola, as it does not have support for these technologies for security reasons (correct me if I'm wrong). You may be able to get somewhere with a Wordpress blog, but you won't be able to make search fields (again, correct me if I'm wrong). However, if you put all of your items in seperate entries and tagged it appropriately, your users will be able to use these tags to find what they want.

Hope this helps
Callum

Callum is right, that site is built without a website builder and you would need to go through a 3rd party service for this. They use PHP and JavaScript and s bunch of stuff for their site but on Yola PHP isn't possible (yet!).
