Hi withasterisk - what page are you referring to that you're trying to get a similar search box from? The easiest way to add a Google search box to your page is to drag the "Widgetbox Gallery" icon onto your page. The very first widget that you see will be a Google Search widget that we made - just click it and you'll have one!

Find a company- company name- go.. then if u click it, a new window will open.

Hi withasterisk

I see what you mean and yes it is a bit annoying to have it open in the scroll box. I do agree with you 100%.

If you currently have Google adsence you can include a search feature which opens in a new tab instead of the scroll box like you presently have... You can use it to search Google or search your own site independently.

I wrote out a tutorial for another user a while back. See if it helps you out any...

Happy site building
